    I've always been attracted to skyscrapers. Something about the massive, beautiful, buildings that stretch hundreds of meters into the sky really amazes me. I've been fascinated by every skyscraper: From the sleek, modern design of the 650-meter tall Shanghai Tower, to the art deco design of the Empire State Building in New York City.

    So when you put two of my favorite things: Minecraft and Skyscrapers, together, you get: me! I like building skyscrapers, but I want some recommendations. I'll put the finished builds in this thread! I'm gonna build them 1:2 scale, but it must be taller than 100m (real life) and shorter than 512m (real life, for obvious reasons). Also, I'm only building real buildings.

    :)

  5. The Shard in London.
    Or the entire Canary Wharf complex, also in London.
    Not sure if it counts but Big Ben in London.
    Or you could just build London, that'd make me very happy.

  12. I'm not offended by it I'm just worried about the people who treat it as a very touchy subject

  13. I know you said real life, but would you accept fictional tower requests? i.e. from films/books/tv that have been given a reliable, visual representation?
