I always love these street lights at night
They look like veins of a living organism
The place is full of weird buildings pic related
Some of it is pretty comfy tho
Yeah that's why I love it, alright they built strange buildings at you either like it or not but it's far from the city historical center so no one complains
Pic related you can see the orange cube close to a green one on the left background of this pic, the city historical center is near the cathedral you can see far

you too please
I specifically want to know if its a meme or not
Many young people are apparently moving there and gentrifying it. I cannot afford to live in manhatten, or the immediate outlying areas (nice part of brooklyn, hoboken, etc)
can't say the same for all of them, sometimes the colour scheme can be ridiculous
>they still didn't break down/renovated commies in the CENTRE of Warsaw
>grey colour is ugly
>oh hey, let's add some random stripes here and there
literally Gommieblock: The Renovation
Don't you think a unified facade is much better?
problem is that this is the cheapest solution and most of the inhabitants (old people) have no taste ("shiny colours")
but it CAN be done, if you are willing to pay for an architect
Sadly I can't partake in the daily /urban/ thread, but as always I want to thank based Polish tripfag for keeping it alive and getting in people
>brooklyn is getting a supertall
>its taller than anything in london
Here's a nice bridge from my city, probably the lesser known one too since no one ever hears about Staten Island.
The thing I love about that building is it doesn't look brand new. It blends in and for all you know it could have been there for 30 years.
Rectangular and angular buildings just work for New York. I hate all these architects trying to force curves and roundness into the skyline.
So is infrastructure in general allowed here?
I'd like to see this street when it snows.
Deathray/10, is it really that red?
If anyone's wondering these picks are in Brooklyn.
all of these pics are on the same scale
Makoko slum, Lagos, Nigeria
I wonder if this could've taken a different path and ended up as a beautiful Venice of Africa
That's actually kind of cool, unlike>>53809353 which looks like hell.
Migingo Island, Kenya
How does this even happen? It's pretty far into Lake Victoria
ITT: post the coolest thing you have in regards to this topic
>tfw will never live on island city
It looks nice, but it makes me nervous being surrounded by water on all sides.
Would love to live here
kek, I'm surprised we even got that far in the first place
yeah it's kind of nice
also /urban/ is getting quite lively recently
btw where's that building?
After a long search i finally found a picture that makes Gothenburg somewhat justice.
Gothenburg is Sweden second biggest city. Founded by Adolf the great if I'm not remember wrong.
It's in Barcelona. Pretty short, barely standing at 110m, but the facade is still cool.
posted this in /cbg/ a few days ago. an unused plan from 1911 for north-western helsinki
how u want ur skyscraper senpai?
just fuck my shit up
Yeahp. You'll notice the area around the bridge to Meilahti is actually layout-wise taken from this plan, but even that was only built in the 1930s. Then the War happened, so no building, and after the War it was a whole new (modernist) world as far as city planning went.
That area all together is rather messed up..
Building in my "home city"
A Swedish work of art. Luckily it doesn't look too out of place in the skyline.
No idea, i found it on google.
Obligatory video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rb3x-MWvSPc
The individual towers look good, clustered together they look good, but on the skyline it all looks lonely and out of place. It should be more vast horizontally, with a better build-up. It's like they only bothered building a small slice of a full skyline. Otherwise top-notch futuristic designs.
You need some boxes. Not every building can be a centrepiece.
I'm ok with boxes just it's that 432 is overly minimalistic
I guess with all these projects going on in NYC it will reassure itself as top 1, the most recognizeable and iconic skyline in the world
though it won't have any megatall sadly
The cladding for this building is going to be fucking beautiful
Chicago, home of Fazlur Khan's greatest work, SOM, van der Rohe.
What the fuck. Is the the final design? As a structural engineer I really wonder how they're planning to compensate for wind loads in such a slender building.
Any details on the construction?
>Is the the final design?
Yep. 1:23 width to height ratio.
I guess just the wind break floors, combined with the tuned mass damper in good enough. Modern concrete being amazing and all that.
So much construction going on in NY
They may need more than they showed in their diagram, but dampers are incredible with wind control. The Taipei 101 can withstand incredible typhoon winds and has no insulation from other buildings. If they evenly distribute them, they can even compensate for the thinness of the building. But yeah, modern concrete'll probably be the biggest factor.
