I think that this thread isn't about futuristic cities in terms of infrastructure etc. Our forum is about architecture, so, I think that this thread about futuristic skylines and futuristic architecture.

Busan certainly has a bright future but I must say that at this moment, it looks like the most sterile city on the planet. Hopefully new projects add some variety to the current stock of rather uniform looking buildings.

Granted that everyone can have different opinions and you get the point in some ways,
but you said that Busan looks like the most sterile city on the planet?

Have you seen all cities on the planet then? And how much do you know about Busan? Have you been to Busan and explored every corners of streets?
Do you choose and use "sterile" as a word to describe the city in terms of futuristic looking?
In what ways does Busan make the most sterile city on this planet?
You know what "the most" means?

In my humble opinion, aren't we talking about "futuristic cities", not critizing skyline itself. I think that means you have to comment whether Busan is futuristic or not. Am I wrong?

PS: How about your canadian cities? Are there no uniform looking buildings at all?
I've been to Vancouver, Toronto and many canadian cities, which has lots of similar boxy buildings all over the places here and there too.
In the future, we will have a rule that there are no uniform looking buildings at all then?

I don't deny that Busan is still lacking some variety and has lot of similar buildings.
How about Toronto? This picture posted the previous pages of this thread as describing futuristic looking.

Toronto Downtown, Can you see four uniform looking black buildings in front of white tall boxy building?

Sterile?
Well, you've never seen the other faces of Busan which has stunning cliffs, islands, crowded beaches, nature reserves, 1300 years-old temples and many festivals all year round.

Busan is the one of the most vibrant cities in the world and a world-famous international conference city.
Busan was ranked as one of the top 4 international conference cities in Asia, and No. 17 in the world, not to mention that Busan is the fifth busiest seaport in the world with transportation and shipping.

OK, I don't know whether Busan is the futuristic city (or the futuristic-looking city) or not.(since I have lived here so many years.)
However, Busan has one futuristic face among many diffrent faces, for example, Busan is the place for e-sports, computer games and something like that(on-line entertainments) .

Btw, you guys want to see Busan more, please visit my thread of Busan.
You are warmly welcome to even bash Busan.

New York would never be my choice, too many old highrise... however Shanghai, Dubai and Moscow would always be on list Riyhad is building nice skycrappers too! but will tak some years before it could look nicer

Guys, are you kidding? Moscow? Yes, it is very beautiful city, but it isn't futuristic at all. Some high skyscrapers doesn't mean that it is futuristic.
