What is commonly termed "modern" design began in the late 30's and ended in the late 70's. NYC is unquestionably the home to more "modern-style" highrises than any other.

I think the word this thread is looking for is "contemporary"- as in, what city has the youngest mass of towers on average. In which case HK wins hands down- followed by Shanghai.

Dubai is an anamoly as it has just begun and has far fewer "contemporary" towers than the above- though they make up a larger percentage of the whole.

I mean people here shout Chicago, HK, etc., but what is so modern about them? Sure they have some skyscrapers that are futuristic looking but what on earth is so modern about Chicago? In other words, why would Chicago be more modern than for example Toronto, Miami, Los Angeles, Seattle or Montreal, just to name a few.

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