Re: Skylines of the World

Wow, constructing 1 Undershaft would be very impressive, not because of the uninspired design, but because of how constricted the site is and it's accessibility for deliveries and heavy machinery in the high density that exists there. I remember with the Leadenhall building (right next to 1 Undershaft), the engineers and construction managers had to painstakingly plan out every delivery, by the hour, even by the minute. It was so complex they had to run computer simulations of the construction over and over until they got it perfect. It's quite a feat of engineering. I can only imagine it being even more difficult for the construction of this building.

Re: Skylines of the World

Heres Dublin, where I got my northern ave bridge proposal from and modified it:






I still think I had the best proposal and since they aren't actually building any of the bridges that they selected I think they should take another hard look at what I gave them. Imagine essentially this over the Fort Point channel replacing the northern ave bridge. These are actually pretty cheap to build as well, considering.

^ That's a proposal (I believe called The Kiss or something like that) which will never be built as rendered.

Re: Skylines of the World

Recently visited Santiago, Chile for the first time.
Thought I'd share some photos. There's a pretty solid amount of contemporary architecture there, mixed in with the historic.

Re: Skylines of the World

Cairo Egypt

Cairo tower imo one of the worlds nicest observation towers


















Imagine if this had been built to a substantial height, it would unquestionably be a world renowned icon. This thing at Burj Khalifa height would have been world class, having this and the pyramids not too far from eachother really would be something else. Even CN tower height would have been incredible.

Oh wow! I had no idea, thats amazing. Theyre well on their way to a megacity. This, Mexico City, and Rio are a few of the only sprawling megacities in the Americas. Santiago almost looks like an asian megapolis. I feel like if LA had never moved away from transit and had looser zoning so it wasnt so much low rise sprawl it would have looked something like this and the asian megacities. Instead it has a very American centralized downtown and low rises emanating away from it. It would be cool to have one in the US, something like a Seoul for example:

https://media.wired.com/photos/59aef...-629196228.jpg

Maybe some day. Im sure LAs density is going to spread out along its new transit lines, and they are relaxing zoning, but itd be a long time before something like this happens. NYC is starting to spread out its high rises into its boroughs so it may be the only city that heads in that direction, although its still creating centralized cbd like areas where its new high rises are in the boroughs vs spread out like other megacities.
