Agreed, except not until Dubai gets the "world's tallest" built. However, Dubai's skyline will still be "lacking" in comparison to the larger (quantitatively) skylines of the world.

The boomtown of Shenzhen was made a "special economic zone" in 1980 turning the one-time fishing village into the beauty she is today. I doubt there are many buildings left from the fishing era pre 1980. Considering this, Shenzhen is the city with the most modern buildnings I know of.

The thread is about the most MODERN buildings in the world not the mose dense or the pretties skylike.

DUBAI win for the most modern. There is no city in the world that can be compared in modernity.
