I was discussing today how high rise changes the character of a place. These sure would make a statement and not a positive one.
but that sun flair helps!
These might be your standard apartment towers but, your photo of them is quite striking.
They seem out of place in such a beautiful old city but you caught the light just right.
Just looking at this photo I wouldn't say that. You made them pretty.
I much prefer smaller dwellings than large condo towers. These are not the worst I've seen, but also not the best.
Ah, I do agree with you, Jose!! I really dislike buildings like this -- whether they're condos or offices!! Great capture tells the whole story of why!!!
I hate this kind of buildings, but those built in the Sixties and the Seventies were even uglier!
It isn't the belle of the ball, but it appears that certain residents will be able to see either sunrises or sunsets. That's something. The whole east coast of Florida is comprised of these types of condos. Some are very beautiful; some are very ugly!
... But the picture is beautiful.Every place is built towers. For example "the bosses" of Helsinki are in love with them :)
They are not exactly pretty are they! Have a good week Diane
Yet naturally you manage to make them look good...
This is what I love about the island I live and blog from, we just don't have high rises. You've managed to find the beauty in the sky, to offset the ugliness of the building.
Design was a little awkward in the 70's and 80's.
Well, they contrast well against that sky.I was writing a post for a blog a few days down the line, and it reminded me of how a lot of architecture from around the Sixties looks awful. Toronto has two city halls. The old one, more than a century old, looks impressive. The one dating back from the 60s looks tedious.
Your negative opinion about towers is something I spend time thinking about. In big cities like New York, high-rise towers are a necessity and add to the feeling of the place. But places like Washington, D.C. and Paris have put controls in place to limit the height of buildings, and those places benefit from the lower scale. Even though I prefer to live in a lower structure, I think that in most places it is OK to have a small number of well-sited mid-rise buildings -- 5 stories? 6? 8?
Beautiful. Love how the sunlight hits the windows.MersadMersad Donko Photography
You made them look good though! I also wish big towers weren't allowed to be built outside the city centres.
I heard on the radio that Toronto has more high towers than any other city in N America except New York and I have to say they are everywhere. It's difficult to get a view without a tower in it although some of them are quite attractive.I disagree with William about our New City Hall - I love it. ;-))
I guess I can say the same thing is happening here in Stavanger as the comment from Helsinki.It probably looks better in the light that shows here.
Well, you made them look good with that reflected flare! That's why your city looks so amazing; strict aesthetic standards!
