Using wjfox's data projections, I wouldn't be surprised if our cities look like this just before the end of this century.

Taken from Commandant's post from the Fictional Architecture thread.

No. Considering that in 100 years the tallest buildings will be only twice the size of the tallest today.

I doubt it tbh, perhaps half the density, the trend is for glass, unusual shapes and eco friendly developments, and those developments don't really fit either. Even more un-likely in UK cities with all listed buildings it would be very hard to achieve anything like that without getting rid of half of the listed buildings.
