Correct me if I'm wrong, I guess mostly all Asian cities are dirty... except for Singapore. And if we take Singapore as a benchmark for city cleanliness, most asian cities fail miserably And it beats many American and European cities hands down too...

"City cleanliness" is overrated.

New York, Paris and London aren't the cleanest cities in the world; nowhere near ~ they seem to be doing fine don't they?

The GT is my favorite scraper in Metro Manila. There's also one planned by KPF in Jakarta and has a similar design.

What is a 'dirty' skyline? New York is full of old buildings and their bricks are not routinely scrubbed from head to toe. Does that mean it has no skyline all of a sudden?

Japanese cities don't look gritty, but that doesn't make their skylines great. In terms of numbers and height, Japanese cities are lacking on an international scale. Keep in mind we're talking about skylines here.
