Default Tau buildings: Skyscrapers or low level housing?

In your opinion (if you have some idea behind why, please include it) do you think the tau would have even their smallest building be five stories high, or would they keep things for the most part lower.

Same here.. I think of tall swooping arcs. Also the infamous Disc on a tall pole that reminds the viewer of a drone.. but in general tall and no straight angles or lines..

The few examples we have seem to favor fairly large buildings interspersed with lower rounded structures

Ah HA! I was right! I knew I'd seen pictures somewhere. There was also a picture of a Tau city someone had made on oz.games-workshop.com but I can't find it anywhere. Oh well.

Tau cities have high techonology buildings, and therefore have the ability to use more of the space they're given. Less wealthy cities can't afford huge skyscrapers, and therefore make smaller ones, about average what we call an 'appartment' building.
