you can even look thru the glass and see that there is not only the sides of the sphere but there is an actual sphere inside

Interesting observation because outside of China these cities . I once saw an article written in an overseas article that started off with the sentence " If you want to see tall buildings in China then Shanghai and Beijing are the places to do it" I mean that's an absurd comment to make especially when you see the above list.

The problem with journalists is they tend to cater to the ignorance of the masses if you tried writing that list up in a newspaper somewhere other than here you would be laughed at.

I really hope this goes up quickly it would do a lot to change the preception of the city . The same goes for the other projects in Cheng Du, Chong Qing, Wuhan, and Chang Sha.

Ignoring vague/dead/stale proposals, my ranking of active >200m projects would be:

1) Shenzhen
2) Tianjin
3) Shenyang
4) Wuhan
5) Dalian
6) Changsha
7) Nanning
8) Chongqing
9) Xiamen
10) Nanchang

Supertalls only:
1) Shenzhen
2) Tianjin
3) Shenyang
4) Wuhan
5) Nanning
6) Nanjing
7) Chongqing
8) Kunming
9) Guangzhou
10) Changsha

Certianly China is crazy. Some cities like Qingdao, Suzhou or Hangzhou, with several supertalls and more than 10x200-300m active towers wouldn't appear in these rankings. Only in China

Well, mostly known Chinese cities are the 1st tier ones so the main 5 and add Tianjin, and maybe wuhan that's what a normal person knowledge of some Chinese cities. But companies now starts focusing on second tier ones and some of the first ones are slowing down like Beijing shanghai and guangzhou. Yes it's kind of silly why the journalists would be writing this but news count as part of entertainment I guess. They try to make it more drama and stuff.

Realistically there are only three cities in China that are well known by people who have never been to China and they are Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong because they seem to appear in the mass media so often. I've met people who have never heard of Guagzhou or Shen Zhen. Unless there's a diaster of some kind they don't make the news.

wow, guangzhou does not appear in the 200m+ top ten, that was rather unexpected, but probably due to the fact that a lot of buildings are already constructed and some of the others in the list just started getting skyscrapers and playing the quick catch up game

Yes, guangzhou and shenzhen is not very popular but if you say canton instead of guangzhou, a lot more people would know. Shenzhen. ? Not so much, its a very new city, but anyone on this forum should know a lot of Chinese cities.

Hong Kong for some reason its always like another country like macau, but its just a SAR. its still part of china.......

A couple of iconic buildings might help put these cities on the map. Most western news outlets are based in Beijing and Shanghai so that's a factor.

I THINK BY 2020 these cities would be famous enough that a normal person has a least heard of the cities.

most people do not care about buildings. when mecca's abraj al bait was finished i did not hear any word of it in any news, although it broke a lot of records. tokyo sky tree i saw one time in tv and that was only like a very short shot without information about it. i doubt any not-interested people will hear about ping an finishing for example, even many chinese people do not know about it. skyscrapers is a really weird hobby to have and most people know nothing about anything related at all about them. the only chinese building i see making big news in the west currently is Sky City, since it brings something new to the table.

When iconic buildings start appearing in blockbuster films that are watched and rewatched around the globe they leave lasting impressions. Most peoples' perception of places they have never been to is largely based on images they see in print or electronic media.

For example an American friend who recently visited the Great Wall near Beijing actually took the train out there. He was amazed by the fact that there were people sitting on tops of trains, buses in China. When asked why he expected such a thing he simply responded that he it was what he saw on TV in the United States. He considered it a given he never questioned it until he saw for himself.

A daughter of an expat friend who returned to study at high school in the UK was asked to give a class presentation one day. While showing photos of her parents condo in China the teacher interrupted asking for its location. When told so she simply scolded the student saying that there were no buildings in China that people there simply lived in mud brick dwellings. As anybody who regularly visits this site can attest that simply is beyond absurd yet these kind of people who argue the point with you.

Perception is reality and perception is largely formed from what we read, or see on the mass media. With the Chinese film market expected to surpass that of the USA in the next deacade in terms of revenue, Hollywood's determination to penetrate this market and the Chinese insistence of a say in matters of creative content I would be surprised if these modern cities in China are not protrayed in film. This would go a long way to altering current perceptions.

However I do agree with everything you said concerning the average Joe. If it's not right under his nose it doesn't compute.
