Skylines




6. Singapore

Metro/Urban Population: 3.8 million One of the best (urban) planned and cleanliest
metropolitan cities in the world, Singapore looks
like an architectural model city come to life. The
buildings cannot be higher than 280 meters due
to air traffic control restrictions, but that has
added a tall (but not too tall) and consistent
building height and space pattern that makes
this skyline unique: Three buildings are exactly
280 meters tall, and 5 others (8 total) stand at
just over 200 meters. The buildings are mostly
light-colored, and there is a large expanse of
greenery dotted around the city core. This
South-Eastern city is definitely in a league of
its own.
