I'm sure Dubai looks very futuristic from some points.. but many kitsch buildings ruin it so badly! :/

P.s. so much anger in your post... I mean, every person has he's own point of view, and everyone can have a right o love Hong kong/ Dubai or not. It is just a matter of taste.
No its just RokasLT's transport comment that ticked me off a bit. Hong Kong's public transit system is commonly regarded as one of the best in the world. I understand that my comment on Dubai is merely an opinion on a very subjective matter.

Of course there is 2 opposing competing visions for a futuristic city here, which reminds me about a class on legal grey areas in engineering. They exist because everyone has a different verdict on the matter. The differences can be explained by everyone having 2 competing visions for humanity

1. humanity can be perfected and overcome its flaws with the right guidance (utopian, eco city etc.) AKA Dubai.
2. humanity can not be perfected because of its flaws but does its best to cope (cyberpunk, scifi distopia) AKA Hong Kong

Everyone lies somewhere between these 2 extremes. We don't consciously think about these things but when asked on a grey area problem its possible to deduce where you are in the spectrum. Both are neither wrong or right. These 2 visions explains the Left vs Right wing, pessimist vs optimist etc.

With the recent completion of the Shanghai tower, I'd say the Lujiazui area has a decent shot for the top.

Astana, Kazakhstan.

Astana (/əsˈtɑːnə/,[4] US /æsˈtɑːnə/;[5] Kazakh: Астана) is the capital city of Kazakhstan. It is located on the Ishim River in the north portion of Kazakhstan, within Akmola Province, though administrated separately from the province as a federal city area. The 2014 census reported a population of 835,153 within the city, making it the second-largest city in Kazakhstan. Founded in 1830 as Akmolinsk (Russian: Акмолинск) and renamed as Tselinograd (Russian: Целиноград) in 1961, the city has evolved into a cultural and administrative centre of Virgin Lands Campaign.[1] In 1992, it was renamed as Akmola (Kazakh: Ақмола), the original name meaning "white holy place" or "white abundance". On 10 December 1997, Akmola became the capital of Kazakhstan. On 6 May 1998, it received the name of Astana, which means "the capital" in Kazakh. Since becoming the capital, Astana has undergone tremendous growth.[6] It is home to many futuristic buildings, hotels and skyscrapers. In addition to serving as government headquarters, Astana is center for industry, sports, healthcare and education.

I think New York is the more futuristic city now. No doubt Tokyo is also good and Shanghai is also advance but New York i above than these cities. I love it so much and we all know "The City That Never Sleeps"
