Project of a Skyscraper in 1909.

This is the most futuristic skyscraper because it is the most paradigmatic: it encloses the concept of reproduction of the world, creation of virgin soil in any limited space of any metropolis. It creates total unpredictiveness of its destination simply because it can host anything. It radicalizes the esthetics of repetition. It is The concept of skyscraper. What cames later is nothing but a soft version of that.

This forum is bullshit. Why glorify places such as Dubai when what the world needs is renewable energy to combat global warming?

Ah yes - the world's largest *****.

Gives a new meaning to 'erecting' a building.

Did anyone mention yet that the HSBC HQ has a huge sun scoop to bring daylight into the atrium?

It's one of those buildings that betrays Foster's Archigram roots (though probably not as much as the Lloyds building did for Richard Rogers about the same time). It doesn't get much more futuristic than Archigram.
