This is stupid because nationalism is something that people are bound to participate in. It cant be avoided. China boasts and is arrogant and the US does the same.

I enjoyed the masterplans, but lets say in 30 years i visit each of these cities, i highly doubt theyll look like that.

You know how many projections and masterplans ive seen for my city? Its pretentious.

Some of these people already act as if these plans are already built.

You seemed to have mentioned China didn't belong to staggering and old western world,hence maybe the rule of YOUR world doesn't suit China.

I think the Ultranationalists from China and Ultra-China-Bashers on this forum are quite balanced, don't you guys think so?

hahaha. Im comparing and contrasting for the sake of comparing and contrasting. Not because its one countries boom to another.

Projections look awesome, but realistically, will any of them look half like that? You guys got a long way to go. Ive seen my share of respectable projections that didnt get anywhere. Projections are made everyday, everchanging.

Dont act as if those buildings are already built.

No I was not refering to you.
Your comment regarding China is quite reasonable.
And not Spooky either.
I am talking about those trollers who frequent Chinese forum and threads a lot, most of them were banned, some are still alive.

Maybe I should have said China is an old civilization whereas the US is a vigorous youth?Is this better?

That's not the intention of this thread. And please don't count some ultranationalists' view as the same as most Chinese.
But my point is very simple. Some people tend to bash China and some tend to brag arround. That's pretty natural. Neither of them should be considered seriously.

I know its just annoying. Thats all I had to say. I have no bad intent myself. I just voiced myself on that subject. I wanna see these cities but the arrogance of some people about it turns me off.

From my experience,these projections will probably get taller and better in realistic buildings in future.

I can fully understand. But people tend to be defensive if they have to defend a lot.

I cant tell you how many projections ive seen for NYC. Its mindblowing, but I realized itd take decades to do, and it was pretty unrealistic.

% wise China is the obvious leader. There are many American cities having a boom themselves. We have many many cities with their own different, individual and respectable skylines, no matter what size.

Our need for residential development is growing, but we dont have 1.3 billion ppl to put anywhere, only 300,000,000, with tons of space. Unless you live in NYC, Chicago, or SF of course, dense living is the best living, hahaha
