Top 30 Skylines of The World

Chicago, USA

#2

Chicago is the birthplace of the modern skyscraper. When Chicago built its first steel high-rise in 1885, it was not the tallest structure in the world but the first example of a new form of engineering that would change nearly every city on earth. Chicago has 20 buildings over 200 metres tall (three of which are among the top 20 tallest buildings in the world, including the tallest in North America). Chicago has some of the finest mid-century architecture and examples of modern skyscrapers. This skyline has many distinctive views, changing it's pattern ever so subtly at each angle you choose to look at it from. Like Hong Kong and New York, Chicago's skyscraper's really do create a line, stacked up along the shoreline, creating a true, skyline effect. Best View(s): Adler Planetarium or Montrose Point or US Cellular Field
