Dubai
Hong Kong
Singapore

(FYI, a futuristic city must be clean, pristene, sleek, steady, and flawless. From experience, Shanghai and Tokyo are none of those things. A futuristic city must be spacious, not crowded. Try catching a bus or dodging traffic in these cities. In fact, just try to breathe the air outside; it is damn near impossible.)

You have different cities, new towns and old towns. In mine opinion is Dubai an new town and Shanghai an old town. Dubai is futuristic in de new world and Shanghai is futuristic in the old world.

New town future Old town future

Dubai is built in a desert so is vegas they have to rely on technology for survival too. Sao Paulo is backward in comparison to other large western centres in most respects so I find it hard to swallow it being labelled futuristic.

Oriental Pearl Tower has more futurism in it that the entire city of Sao Paulo IMO.

if the future was based on a vision of the 1970s then yes it would win...


Shanghai looks more like a futuristic alien city with it's extraneous archietcture.


Vegas with the Luxor and its light beacon.


Central/Admiraly - Hong Kong with A shiny looking BOC and unusual Lippo Centre


Again more futuristic alien buildings in Dubai - extraneous and other worldly in appearance.


Shenzhen and its bright, dynamic buildings...

Nominations are now closed.

As this contest has been running for so long (due to me being away), it's going to take me a while to add up all these nominations, but I'll try and get a poll done by the weekend.

Cheers

Will
