This is me everytime I see an asian skyline



But the only thing that can compete with this:



Is this:



I think asian skylines overall are still quite behind, but they are catching up quickly. Their problem is that they developed high density buildings back when money was scarce, hence the quality and design of most of those developments is quite poor and it harms the skyline and so does their lack of city planning in most cases.

Hmm, I think difference between asian and western skyline is that one is modern and the other is aging. And some of them are not cute rather massive

Nonsense. Chinese cities are jam-packed with apartments and low-rises that are barely newer than the average building in Manhattan.

A taste of the new, a rare angle from the core of Manhattan.

Seriously? US is not world centre of skyscrapers anymore, Asia and especially China is. Actually only two american cities(NYC and Chicago) are top tier skylines now. Also HK, Dubai, Tokyo, Shanghai, Singapore are definetly not poor quality. Yeah I know about NYC building boom but still it won't match development of Shenzen, Suzhou, Wuhan, Guangzhou etc.

skyline? that's an aerial view. Any large city looks impressive from the air, and that's not even all of Shenzhen. Shenzhen is a long way off from becoming the best, but it has the potential. If it were building supertalls less sporadically and more in the city's center then it would be much more impressive. Most of what they're building in the center aren't as tall, discounting Pingan FC and that other Caiwuwei Mega-Tower which I haven't heard about in ages.
