Love green architecture!

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Both of your submissions have a virtue in common, though: slopes, and more of a horizontal than a vertical profile. Skyscrapers create an excess density of ppl per sq (mile, km, etc) and uber-crowded roads & transit systems.

I've long wondered if their becoming so common as technology allowed them isn't largely a result of (mostly male) architects and politicians having err, "erected" them as concrete or glass & steel phallic symbols.

Re: Architecture and Urban Planning.

"Square" skyscrapers are very common because they maximise the investment.

Toronto's transit system is already outdated and they keep on building more condo towers.
They're lucky half of them are bought by Asian investors and are inhabited but that's just insane.
