I agree to some extent. There is a sameness, particularly in Birmingham, and Manchester, but there is an elegance also. What is vital to tall building design is the height to width ratio, which in both cities is achieved with striking results.The big problem that I have with all of these high rise buildings, is that they all look the same. Nothing has any character any more.
