Most futuristic city is Sao Paolo and Paris
both have unbelievably good waste treatment schemes and energy conservation plans, excellent capability of holding up millions of people in a good environment and in paris becoming the first city to be entirely wireless, the first everywhere online internet city in the world!.
Futuristic? That for me means cities that plan ahead for the future, not some weird buildings that will go out of fashion the day they are opened.

dubai isnt even in the top 20.. futuristic has to be more than x number of over 40 storey towers and lavish designs.. it ahs to be about engineering feats and conquering obstacles facing multi-million residents cities like unique transportation, waste or zoning systems..
to have the worlds highest building is more narcistic than futuristic, because its not saying anything on how future cities will look or need to change

when dubai has 2-3 million people and can feed them then maybe it will be eligable.. right now futuristic is being able to house and feed 10-20 million people and do it efficiently in a sustainable way..
I dont see one thing dubai is doing for the ecology, in fact, It is ruining the water habitat by all the islands it is building

Yes but you can say the way of the cityplanning in Dubai is very futuristic. With artificial islands etc as solutions. Very well planned green areas, new trafficsystem etc. It's very good planned.

They way they plan developement for Dubai i believe is the future of cityplanning for larger cities.

"I dont see one thing dubai is doing for the ecology, in fact, It is ruining the water habitat by all the islands it is building"

I wouldn't say the islands got that much of an impact in the ecology, they also create more litoral (at least thats what its called in Swedish, the marine biological ecology near the coast).

I nominate Hong Kong.

The Central District is taken right out of a science fiction movie. The "skywalks" are very futuristic and so are almost all of the buildings.
