I'd be lying if I didn't say that I'm happy some of those monuments to excess are safely in the graveyard.

You're not kidding. A lot of these are just utter garbage and just unrealistic.

Simplicity is the way to go most of the time.

No... it does not. The 1st one was for a design competition. The 2nd is the Aqua Tower in Chicago.

Wrong, the one i posted was a 350m+ tall rejected proposal in Chingqing, China. You should be able to see the difference easily. As said by helghast as well.

Is it weird that's the one I am more fond of? It would've looked spectacular!

Ahh, if only I was a trillionaire...

^ No :-(

The one I looked forward to the most in China, besides the Shanghai Tower. The original 600m height would have looked awesome next to the Pingan and complimented it, how far would they have been apart?

An "eco-city" in Hong Kong! Green projects are good and exiting, but i am really happy something like this never got built!

An Urban Jungle for Hong Kong
The urban mesh of the Central Business District in Hong Kong is surrounded by the green hills visible from the Victoria Peak in the South and by the
sinuous bank of the Pearl River. On the horizontal stratum compressed along the curves of the levels of the precipitous relief, the city structured
itself vertically through a field of more or less frayed towers of glass and steel. Hong Kong is one of the more populated territorry in the world with
a density of 30 000 inhabitants/km².

To answer to this overpopulation, the project "Urban Jungle" proposes to re-tame the nature and to widen the territory of the ultra-contemporary
city. In the heart of the South China Sea, this "perfumed harbour" will abound in an urban jungle by the renaturalisation of the urban landcape and
its extension on Central Waterfront. In the framework of the long lasting development, the goal is thus to increase the real estate availability by
setting up an ecologically positive strong print. This means so that the new built spaces are auto-sufficient and produce more energies and
biodiversity that they consume!

That just looks so wrong. In a weird way I see a resemblance with chess pieces.
