i don't see how that represents modernity.

there's a bunch of very modern-core cities, but we've got to find the one that is modern as a whole. i was thinking about silicon valley

The thing is, HK invented the new way of using the smart card. Japan invented and manufactured the cards, but they didn't start using electronic wallets until 4 or 5 years after HK had introduced its smart card system.

The question doesn't ask for the most modern city it asks for the most futuristic. Of course technologically advanced plays a part but I don't think that's the only thing that defines a futuristic city. If it's only most technologcally advanced then Tokyo wins hands down.
With a question like that we need to ask "what will cities be like in the future?". Will all cities be like Tokyo in the future? I hope not.
Cities will not all be the same. If we take Star Wars cities as George Lucas's idea of futuristic cities then he certainly doesn't invisage them as all being the same. I suppose you could say Coruscant is a bit like a future Tokyo and Naboo as what a historic city would be like in the future. Some cities will change drastically and technology will be overt and apparent everywhere, other cities will appear to have not changed very much but they will have incorporated technological advances in different ways which won't be so obvious because they do not want to destroy the historic character of the city.

That's a beautiful city. Gorgeous bridge. FUNKY street lights. It lacks one important trait though. . . .activity. Or is it just me?

Just to give you an impression about the massive size, the two white structures are each about the size of an Eiffeltower.
I have visited the Oosterschelde Stormvloedkering -- it is a most impressive work of engineering. And I believe in its efficacy.

I forgot the exact cost when they started work in the 70s, but it was astronomical. And that is only one part of the entire protection system -- there are many other dykes, dams and fortifications -- some fixed, some mobile like Stormvloedkering so that it closes only when threatened -- they was systematically built since the late 50s.

While New Orleans and the lower Mississippi are geographically different than Holland, it is worthwhile to make this comparison to get an appreciation of the cost and the effort that will be involved for proper protection of lowland coastal areas.

Dubai is more like a "disneyland" or Las Vegas, it's not a real city- more like an Oasis in the middle of the desert. In the future I wouldn't be surprised to see it dry up just like the oil will in 20 years.
I would say Tokyo is the worlds most futuristic city.
