Sorry Jakarta, Bangkok, Sao Paulo, et al; y'all uglee. Don't care how many people live there. They are monotonous, messy, and lacking in design. Hardly beacons of modernity, variety or setting...

I think Sao Paulo has merit and is better than Jakarta or Bangkok, actually. It's so big and dense that it has a sense of infinity. And some of the older skyscrapers and those big communication tower give it some flair. It's sort of ugly but in an appealing, gritty way.

Overall, I'd say:

1. Melbourne
2. Sao Paulo
3. Sydney
4. Brisbane
5. Jakarta/Bangkok/Perth?
6. Auckland mainly for its TV tower.

By pics, yes.
But in reality, buildings in both Bangkok and Jakarta have more WOW looks since they are taller and bigger than average buildings in Sao Paolo. If you take one tall tower of Jakarta, let's say BNI 46, and put it on Sao Paolo, it will definitely dominate the skyline.

Sorry Jakarta, computer says no...
While Sydney might not yet have the height ... it is coming. Still, Sydney Tower is currently taller than anything in Jakarta anyways.

Is that the "modern architecture" people are referring to?

I really realized that people who claimed to be from the world that have developed, civilized.. proved to be only short-sighted people.
They stunned .. those who had thought they had become so great .. it turns out, Oh ! out there, there is another world that is more powerful and more advanced .. and it has made them embarrassed to admit .. so blindly .. then they issued various opinions with sentences that do not make sense at all, very childish ... hmmm ..

INDOSIAR TV Tower (395 m)





SYDNEY Tower ..

http://www.aviewoncities.com/buildin...ydneytower.htm

Total height : 305 m (incl. antena)
Roof height : 275 m


CEMINDO TOWER, Jakarta
Total roof height : 289 m





I suggest to you ... you should much reading or watching tv .. so you will not be embarrassed because of your own words, which makes no sense at all .. as your other utterances in this strange thread, which precisely describe clearly of your shallowness.

Labeling someone a troll is often the defense of people who have no counter argument. I give you my word, my opinions are genuine.

What part of my post makes no sense and is childish? The buildings I pointed out lacked architectural merit, either with dull grey or concrete facades or glass with moldy faded green cladding. I'd be ashamed to have some of these buildings in my city, luckily in a clusterf*ck skyline individual towers don't stand out that much, so I guess Jakarta gets a free pass there. My point is that from every photo I've seen of your beloved city, the predominant architectural quality is poor, if not worse than poor. The smog that I see everywhere certainly doesn't help either. You seem to have this delusion that I'm jealous of Jakarta, newsflash buddy, I call a spade a spade and outside your local bubble not everyone thinks your city is so stunningly awesome.

As for calling me short-sighted, the real short shortsightedness here can be found in Indonesia urban planning and sustainability. How are them slums, and traffic jams and smog and dismal infrastructure and deforestation and unchecked population growth working out for you?

Indeed, we know how to make use of a good hyperbole, I guess having a grasp of the rhetorical devices of the English language makes us un-educated.
