"Billionaire Broad Group CEO Zhang still adamant that 838 meter tall Skycity skyscraper will be built."

In a way it already exists and has existed for 2000 years. Concrete. Concrete is similar to 3d printing by pouring a liquid into a mold to form a rock into any shape we want. Quicker and easier than sculpting natural stone. Stronger too.

they should build tons of 200m structures instead until they have more expertise to get into crazy heights.

They continue to build highrises under this forum's radar, dunno why they don't go for the 200m mark.

You can never make assumptions of the tallest towers in 2045. There will be sooo many new projects above 1000m+ until this time that we can't predict anything 3 decades before

Judging from what we've seen in the past, I wouldn't be surprised if by 2045 we're building floating skyscrapers and racing to build the "highest skyscraper" (skyscraper that's floating the highest above ground).

Which future for megatalls ?

I've made this graphic with CTBUH database. Since 1980', skyscrapers are build circa 10m taller every year. If the trend continues, we should see 1km skyscrapers becoming common in 2050 even if higher skyscrapers could be built in the arab countries before.

However I think that a financial crisis will happends in Asia soon. Ten years after this crisis, if there is no war or disaster, we should see Africa booming with several megatalls build in the main cities.

And by the end of the century, Antartica could become the new megatalls continent (if skyscrapers are still usefull).

Here are my predictions ... See you in 2050, and in 2100 !

Such a strange name for it - "2045" Removing just one tower would make it 2021, and would be much more realistic.

From another thread:

You assume correctly. That they aren't on man-made structures is not relevant in this case, since I brought them up to counter your "all you see is a map"-statement. I've been on a number of those, and the experience quite definitely differs from looking at a map.

It depends on the surroundings of course. In Dubai (this post is in response to a discussion in a Dubai thread, for those who don't know) you'll see vast plains of yellow no matter if you're at 300m or 3000m. Most skyscraper/supertall cities that could build such structures however have far more scenic surroundings, New York State/New Jersey or the Pearl River Delta certainly aren't the dullest areas to behold from above.

That's an extremely light prediction.

You do realise there is litteraly nobody outside few scientific and adventurers there?

And even IF in the future people start moving to antartica, let's say gobal warming melt a lot of ice revealing more land and making antartica more livable.

Even if this happen , antartica will have to grow his culture (as there is no native population to begin with , unlike dubai ) and economy (well mayeb oil if it's still as important in 2100 ?)


If this actually happen , let's better to hope for a supertall than plenty of megatall, because it's unlikely antartica will yet need such construction (unless it goes middle east style, just for the contest of the biggest )

Unless for whatever reason antartica became the new superpower with at least dozens of millions of new and rich habitants

If we are building towers in anartica, all the major cities by the sea would be underwater.

You're right ! It's more a scenario than a prediction, because it's clearly uncertain. I know that currently no ones lives full-time in Antartica.
Antarctic Treaty will end in 2048. If there are resources in Antartica (and there are) we could see some part of Antartica colonized by people from countries all over the world (particularly by climate refugee) like America in the 19th century.
At this period, construction should be cheaper and faster than now due to the use of 3D printing. I imagine that cities would be quite dense because of the climate, so everything could be done without going out.
Even if this scenario seems unrealistic, I think it's quite possible that it happens.
