Actually it is.... we need more energy efficient buildings.

But the main direction to improve energy consumption is right from the design. Try to build buidings that consume less energy for heating/cooling/light/etc is the main goal, and where is the real economy. Turbines are just for fun (just like a spire) but when a better designed building consumes 20-30% less energy than a conventional building, the economy rise to millions every year...

Size of those buildings .Yeah they attached a 160 mt antenna to burj khalifa and made a 660 mt tall building look 820 mt .Remember China as of now has 4 parallel 600 mt supertalls under construction
The Shanghai Zhongxin or the Shanghai tower
The Guangzhou Tv tower
The Pingan International finance tower
The China 117

Another building in wuhan has been given approval which is 600 mts + For more info on that ask z0rg.

Dubai has built one tower that is the burj khalifa and has created so much media hype that i am tired of reading anything about dubai any longer

And I am tired of dumbass nationalists turning every thread into a "my country is better than your country"-contest. Can't you Heil your Vaterland somewhere else? This is a development and construction forum.

What nationalist nonsense are you talking about .I am neither from china nor I am an ethnic Chinese. I was just responding to a not so factually correct point stated by some guy ahead of me and was giving my side of my view .If you have forgotten then please repeat after me .This is a forum where people give their side of the views.

Maybe if you are just fien with one side of a discussion you woudl be better of reading newspapers rather than coming to forums where people discuss views

How is Guangzhou pronounced, exactly? I've always assumed it was something along the lines of "Gyongcho." Am I close?
