True. But infrastructure does matter as well!

Why I chose Shanghai

Many cities build amazing highrises, to me this does not define a futuristic society. Look at Dubai and Riyadh for instance... societies that can hardly be seen as progressive are still able to spawn amazing buildings.
Shanghai wins in my book because of its amazing progress in public facilities and especially its infrastructure. The maglev train linking the city to its new airport is truly an amazing achievement that outshines all the glittering towers that have been built there.
