What will the skylines of 2050 be like?

What might the skylines of various cities be like in the year 2050? What changes will your city have by then?

Very difficult question.

Maybe cloud cities to escape the heat on the surface?

I can expect much weirder shapes of towers inside skylines if elevator technologies that go sideways and in angles gets better with time. Many more connected buildings will become possible as well.

I think advances in areas like modular building and 3D printing combined with better access to education (so more architect) would allow for every "commie block" to have an individual design for the same cost or less, so instead of those stereotypical seas of identical apartment buildings like you see in Korea for example, you'd have a varied skyline just with lower to lower middle class apartments.

I noticed that garden rooftops and greenspaces on skyscrapers are becoming more and more common. Will these be the norm by 2050?

They won't be much different than Now. How different is New York skyline compared to 1970s?

Inevitable response.

But a lot of cities have changed a lot over the last 40 years:

With the current rate of temperature increase/global warming, we could see domed cities in the Middle East in the future. Summer temps in the Middle East could reach 60°C (140°F), it may become too hot for humans to survive.

My guess that future skylines in the Middle East could be like this, a climate-controlled domed city.

How the hell could anyone know how certain cities will have changed by then? This is a pointless question, friend.

I feel like a lot of todays visions will result in less exciting built buildings. Also the hysteria of a possible dystopian future will not get real. Yes, we had a huge jump in skyscraper construction over the past 15 years, but at some point reality and economy will hit us. We also have no clue what kind of wars might effect our cities, and what kind of rebuilding efforts they might cause. There are a lot of various influences that might effect this matter. I think that we will try to create more nature friendly buildings. Maybe buildings with components that can be totally dismantelled and used again on other buildings?! These are my actual two cents for this topic.
