DISCUSS | Supertalls of the past, present and future

Hey there,

I thought maybe a general discussion thread only about supertalls should be opened. Megatalls have it so why can't supertalls have one?

Anyways its logical to have this open as there a ton more supertalls than megatalls whether it's past, present or future. Talk about supertalls with any status!

Talk everything supertalls! Obviously adding pictures is more than welcome. Also I believe that this thread will be good to talk in if someone doesn't want to bump a certain thread so questions can be asked here.

Everyone enjoy !

Mini supertall rant:

I like Freedom Tower well enough and WTC 2 Foster design is wonderful, but I still wish Foster's original twin-tower design won and got constructed eventually. He lost the competition due to lacking urban scheme solutions in his masterplan. Yet Libeskind's winning plan has been HEAVILY modified and improved since the initial reveal. Foster's masterplan could've been fixed and improved too. But the kissing Tower would be better and more iconic than Freedom Tower + WTC 2 (especially if the BIG design for WTC 2 goes through instead of Fosters)

It looks much too big in the urban context.
I think it 's ugly, especially with this big flat roof. Sorry, Foster !

I guess that the tallest supertall to begin this year will be the CTF in Wuhan, with 648m. Also Hyundai Global Business Center in Seoul (569m)
