LOS ANGELES, USA

#34

Los Angeles is a strange sort of big city. There are a number of skyscrapers in the core business area however for a metro of 18 million people, it's skyline pales compared to that of cities which are similar in size. The building restrictions due to earthquake fears are a part of the issue, but urban sprawl is at the heart of the matter. This is a city build for cars with around 30 major freeways running through the city. The old height limitations was to keep Los Angeles more "low-rise" and open to ensure more sunlight and fewer shadows on the streets. Nonetheless, for LA not being known for having a great skyline, it actually has a pretty impressive one. It sports 10 buildings over 200 m, none of which were build after 1991.
