I'd hate it if our cities looked like some of the those pictures.

Dubai, Hong Kong, and Shanghai in terms of skyscrapers.
Tokyo as an overall city.

I'll give that to Dubai. Futuristic doesn't necessarily mean better towers or skylines though.

Dubai
Shenzhen
Tianjin
Guangzhou
Wuhan
Shanghai
Abu Dhabi
Singapur
Tokyo
King Abdullah Economic City (If it gets built)
Jeddah
A few of that citys will look futuristic in a few years, a few already do. I never visited one of them but I think they are futuristic. I judged the cities only from pictures. Hope I did not forget any important one.

Toronto doesn't look futuristic, most of the cities posted in this thread don't.

Yeah for example New York cant really look futuristic because there are so much houses from the 30s.

Being a resident of Toronto I can safely say that Toronto is not really futuristic. I would say its modern by how much neo-modern glass box condos sprouting left right and center. They have some futuristic bits such as Dundas Sq and the ROM but other than that nothing much.

Toronto lacks the massive scale of infrastructure that makes you feel insignificant like Shanghai or Hong Kong for example:

seems like majority of people in this thread like to focus only on the skyline when they discuss about "the most futuristic city" but imo other vital factors should be included and acknowledged too. things such as public transport, train, bus, taxi, airport, carbon dioxide emission, air population, recycling, green energy, computer, internet and computer systems etc.

OMG I love the advertisement enticing people to migrate to Australia. We really were desperate for people back then

My family migrated in 1966 which is why I find it so interesting.
