I dont know about other chinese cities, but i think that brazil would win in density!

I agree that in quality china and the US win!

We are talking about High-rises!

Definitions for High-rise:

1) being multistory and equipped with elevators

2) of, relating to, or characterized by high-rise buildings

Chill out with the insults man, you'll get the thread shut down. Furthermore, I love Brazilian cities. Many are massive and filled with wonderful natural beauty.

Since when did America invade skyscrapers? Ancient ziggurats in Babylonia preceded American scrapers by thousands of years.

Looking at Brazillian cities Im shocked. Man, I would never want to live in one. Those buildings are ugly.

Yeah yeah, swear, beat, screw with Brazilian cities. Just REMEMBER that 80% of these cities' buildings were built in the 70's and 80's, which were NOT a good time for archictecture, specially talking about a country that is/was not RICH and had, that time, a small and no-experience Estate/Building Segment. And we cannot simply destroy 80% of our cities now just because the buildings look 'ugly'. Well, they're ugly, but they dont kill you and they are useful.

We couldnt fulfill our cities that time with these:



Or these:
