I don't think Sky Tree looks very futuristic...maybe in a cold alien way it's futuristic (if that makes sense..you know all metallic and stuff). What is going to make Sky tree look "futurustic" though is its LED lighting, read this:

'Sophisticated' blue and 'elegant' purple LEDs to light Tokyo Sky Tree
http://mdn.mainichi.jp/mdnnews/news/...na004000c.html
Quote:
Furthermore, the antenna at the very top of the tower will shine a brilliant white, inspired by snow-capped Mt. Fuji. The two observation decks will be ringed by more white LEDs that will light up for one second in turn, producing a wave effect around the tower.
Speaking of Tokyo I just noticed that the Black Eyed Peas music video is in Tokyo, take a look it looks pretty futuristic



@ 2:48 they even took a video from the automated Yurikamome train, pretty cool This has 96 million views!

I would say American cities are out of this contest, NYC doesn't really look futuristic, Chicago is more modern, and could be called futuristic because of trump, sears, JH. But I would say HK, Tokyo, Shanghai, but check out this pic image hosted on flickr
If I ever get really rich, I am gonna pay chicago to build the USR building from IROBOT lol

i'd say Tokyo is the most futuristic city...

however this photo posted by Nord in the Shanghai Tower thread makes Shanghai look pretty out of this world (not so futuristic at street level though)

Overall skyline, I'd say Shanghai, but in terms of street feel and technology, then it's Tokyo.

Moscow has a very long way to go with all its commie blocks and old skyscrapers

Shanghai and Hongkong is good candidates also

i voted and totally support Dubai and this is why

Most of Dubai just popped out of the desert in litteraly 15 years so all its buildings is very modern and many of Sci fi like design that totally belongs in movies. and still many places u got desert sand and then bam a skyscraper.

Becuase no tax and very cheap cars most of the cars in Dubai is very new barley a few years old wich really affects the city picture and they are implementing laws to keep older cars of the streets.

And its also a very multinational city much more than many of the other cities mentioned which also is a very modern and futuristic thing.

as mentioned earlier its in the middle of the desert and its all artificial supported by very many gas turbines and desalination plants.

the city has very much verticality compared to its population Tokyo Isen`t even close to hawing the same population-skyline height ratio and Tokyo has many old buildings. and Dubai has much more tall buildings that is needed at present


Dubai also has along with Hong kong a special City government wich is very typical in many futuristic sci fi movies. Dubai has Some really big structures that are very futuristic like the Dubai mall and Burj khalifah
