    R34 is a great skyline I'd say...

    but seriously, its Chicago...by far! especially when in an "Architecture" forum. If this was not an architecture forum, we get what we have here: many different cities posted for personal reasons, some huts, and yes even a car. lol!

    but again, this should be about Architecture in this forum, and no Modern City has more history of architecture than CHICAGO!

    1). arguably 1st skyscraper ever built.
    2). once had tallest skyscraper ever built.
    3). Mies van der Rohe, a modernist architect from the Bauhaus, came to Chicago's IIT from Germany. Since the very early 1900s, he was designing "steel and glass" skyscrapers, but the technology was not there yet. In 1950s, he had Crown Hall built in south chicago, and also revolutionized the steel structure with glass inserts to create/promote the modern skyscraper as we know it!!!!!
    5). S.O.M. designs both Sears Tower and John Hancock Center using steel structures on the exterior and glass window inserts to create open floor plans.
    4). Helmut Jahn, a IIT graduate, has recently developed a curtain wall using cables and glass which is seen in many "new" skyscrapers around the world.
    5). Olmstead and Burnham's traditions live on as we now have public beaches and parks offsetting the GORGEOUS city in any picture when viewing from the lake.
    6). etc, do some research guys!

    Chicago shaped so many of the modern cities, it isn't even funny. So when a person, for personal reasons, claims their city as being the most beautiful in the world, at least a couple elements can be traced back to Chicago, making Chicago the greatest skyline...ever!

    ...just my humble opinion.
