Who /small city/ here?
>tfw "downtown" is almost all parking
At what point does a city move from parking lots to parking structures?
Stavanger is less nice, but it can be excused as it was a rather poor city after the viking ages until modern times. At least it has a lot of spires.
Trondheim is quite nice again.
Like with Bergen, there's some history to be found there.
Fredrikstad is also alright, but most notable for its fortress.
And lastly, Oslo, which is what it is.
Of course there's Tokyo too, which is the best Norwegian city
Barcode is actually soon to be finished, with only one tower left in its cluster under construction.
A couple more towers might be coming to the right here, but still no design for them.
I think the height is alright, as it is right by the waterfront after all. Don't want to have tall wall of towers that blocks out everything else. And it's also a start, as it gradually makes people more and more used to heights. The real towers should come behind, next to these two lonely ones.
France is unbeatable.
It's so odd. If you have a line of important buildings, they're supposed to be on the same street. Each building in that cluster has 2 streets on either side.
When does a viaduct become a bridge? As we have a few that at least look like viaducts.
If parking demand requires extention but land purchasing more costly than construction works and ongoing maintance minus operational income.
In your case - not in your lifetime.

They are a cluster of buildings. But if you need to get from one end to the other, you have quite a long walk. Compare that to, say, The City in London. They are bunched together and thus quicker to get to.
I like how Cornish and Brittany architecture is similar. This is Looe, Cornwall, but it could easily be in Brittany.
I don't think you quite understand.
It's barely 250 metres from start to end, with everything behind being trains tracks, and the end of a freeway being to the right. Coupled with the fact that it's a tiny space overall, and the soil in front being weaker, I don't think it would be possible, practical or beneficial to build a City of London type cluster there, especially when grouped with the fact that the 12 towers are barely 50% of the full development. If you had been there, you would also realize how incredibly easy it is to navigate and get from A to B, not to mention interesting, as the gaps between the buildings are all quite unique (and you can literally walk straight through some of the towers).
A couple (outdated) visualizations too, to give an idea of the project.
Indeed it is. Everything about the building feels very majestic and high-class, even the toilets lmao.
Yeah, but I don't mind. It makes it all look complete. Putting another batch of high-rises there would look silly, and too imposing. Even that one high-rise on the artificial platform in front there looks silly.
Where would you rather live in? Comfy, traditional, "livable" town/small city
Reminds me a bit of a town here called Arendal, but with fancier buildings.
And I'm not sure. I like both "rural" and city life, but maybe the latter, in a central area preferably. I enjoy the feeling of there being life around me, and I also enjoy being in walking distance to all my needs.
I visited Geneva. And despite all these institutions, I didn't really feel this global vibe. It looked kind of I dont know, a bit empty? Probably it's not large enough for me. But it's a beautiful and clean city for sure.
that's not my taste kek
you would be dissapointed to see my taste : ^ )
I just prefer skyscrapers and large metropolies than even the qtest towns, but I think this general should be diverse
wew I imagine this brit sperging if he saw this
Damn, I honestly didn't know that London was so ugly
He was like "all skyscrapers are shit and should be removed, there is a way to build a large metropoly without skyscrapers at all"
>Brooklyn is getting a supertall
>taller than anything in London
>better looking too
