You are so very wrong, you are comparing a new city to two very old cities. Go back and watch a video or documentary about the building of the Empire State and Chrysler Building it was a complete competition to see who could build the tallest. Go look at the new Hudson West or Hudson Yards what ever they are called, or the new WTC, these building are built to hold a title.

Instead of serving as points of pride, they are symbols of futility, inferiority complex and waste of national wealth. Never mind, that they are also designed by the American architectural firms and built by using western material science and firms..... So, reading the big sign outside the work area, it states Adrian Smith and Gordon Gill as the architects, but the Ben Laden Group (does the name sound familiar: yeah, Osama Ben Laden's folks) are the supervising group. Well done--so very not
You sound like a supporter of the King.

Las Vegas? do hotel developers gild a 24 carat gold glass facade skyscraper in the nevada desert to satisfy a personal ego? or is the motive commercial to increase the value of real-estate and to attract tourists and investors?

Some evolutionists say if you want to see evolution in action, you should observe western attitude toward 21st century forest. While most westerns swallowed their pride and learned to co-exist with others, certain groups are heading to separate evolutionary pathway. This one belongs to the latter. Due to the inbreeding of these creatures, it is expected to classify them as separate species by the end of 21st century. We shall call them Homo bitterpiens.

Ok I'm done being lame

But seriously though, you need to see a doctor before you explode out of anger. We wouldn't want you to be grouped with us, proclaimed terrorists

No hate speech please. Back to architecture please.

Bottle, you are on a wrong discussion forum. Your audience should be R. Dawkins and L. Krauss.
