I would have loved to visit Dubai, back in 1998, when it was a desert oasis with just a handful of really iconic buildings like Jumeriah Beach hotel and the Burj al Arab.

I've completely lost interest now, seeing that the place has turned into another get-rich-quick construction zone like every other metropolis in the developing world. I'd argue that the ratio of quality architecture to cookie cutter steroid condos has plummeted over time. Some of the building materials used are really cheap, despite the outward flashiness in form.

The images are beautiful! To whom should we attribute the credit for their creation?

I have visited Dubai three times, evey time it really looked like a different city to me, but you can't create a jungle by just putting some tall trees in an empty land, like a jungle, a skyscrapercity also needs many other things, at least a normal process of development.

To a lesser extent, that is true of Panama City as well. It will take a number of years for infrastructure and urban environment to catch up to their incredible skyscraper construction boom.

This is very true, up until now Panama had lacked first-world infrastructure in many areas, especially urban planning, public transport and general mobility of its citizens.

Currently there is a myriad of infrastructure projects going on, including a complete revamp of the cities streets and intersections, a new BRT system started in Dec. 2010, a full-blown Metro line just started construction, and lots of urban renewal changes are goin to take place, it is constantly said that panamanians are going to go through a few years of urban hell with all the construction going on, but within 2-3 years the city will be RADICALLY different, it'll be everything it deserves to be and it'll blow away those who had seen it before its change.

San Francisco is really good. Dubai skyline is also emerging rapidly. Vancouver has the biggest skyline. Honourable mention: Doha, owns fantastic lighting at night and phenomenon architecture.

Stop trolling, San Francisco's population is 4.2 million and the Bay Area as a whole has a population of 7.4 million.

To avoid the confusion, this thread's title should be "World's best skyline: population under 3 million (metro pop)"
