I live in a very rural area and every single student in my grade wants to move into a more urban area, no joke. Now, I realize that isn't true for everyone on the planet, but the younger generations seem to like the idea of living in a larger city with an urban climate. I can guarantee that most of my classmates will end up living in metro Atlanta.

Easy, just cover the walls with huge OLED displays, and pipe in live footage from high-definition cameras. The footage doesn't even need to be from outside the building, it could be from anywhere. You could have people setting up cameras outside their scenic Hawaiian beach homes and charging a small fee for people to stream it to their wall-screens.

actually, if you put everyone in the world in Texas, the population density would be 24000 per square mile, or, about 1100 square feet per person....

at Manhatten's density, you can shove 18 billion people into Texas- and we'd have them saying "y'all", drinking Lone Star beer, and hating on the Dallas Cowboys within a week

The logistics of sustainably importing food and water, and exporting trash and human waste, from such an arrangement are probably physically impossible.

But that's an extreme case. A more distributed arrangement of super-cities around the globe, surrounded by farmland and connected by rail and airplanes, is much easier to think about.

One day they will get older and they will grow out of this.

Then like many people who are not younger generation, they will desire open spaces, clean air, peace, greenery, and quiet.

Look around major cities next chance you get. Notice that everyone is under the age of 40 and most are in their 20's.

Yeah, I realize that tends to happen, but I think we're all scarred for life living here, so none of us will risk going back.

I grew up in Yuma, AZ and couldn't wait to live in a big city. First Phoenix, then L.A. for 35 years. But now that I'm 'old', I love living in the rain forest in rural Hawaii, a long way from the hustle of the city. But I love keeping track of the buildings going up all over the world!

When you get older 30's and 40's you want to move back to the countryside

I can promise you all that if I ever did decide to move back for the country, it wouldn't be me making that decision.

Do you guys think there will be more supertalls in China in the future? China is merely less than 10K GDP per capita, but is boasting so many supertalls already O.O

Is this like 10% of what we will see in the future? Maybe 20%?

10K per capita is for whole china, not for major cities. China is a big country and has a lot of areas that are not as much developed as the main cities that supertalls are rising in, but it is getting there.

If you look at the last pic, one bit is taller than the other, hence my question

It's one core, but the formwork isn't raised in one part, that part was raised before the other.
