Shanghai has way too many hideous buildings to take No. 1.

I'm not sure it is not the buildings but the color scheme. Shanghai looks like a technicolor nightmare with lavenders next to dark green next to bright blue, it doesn't mix well. Oriental Pearl Tower is a beautiful structure but that bright magenta gives me vertigo and bad gas
