I'm in China right now. Very nice overview so I can watch out for some building sites. Expect some Shanghai tower updates in a few weeks.

He said in terms of skyline and highrises. So yes, though opinions may vary and depending on how you look at it, he can be right.

I do believe - and I am not going to name specific buildings or cities or nations - there are a lot of kitschy and cheesy looking skyscrapers under construction; happily the Chinese have better taste than that.

While I will be the first person to say that China has a lot of amazing architecture being produced, there is also plenty of kitschy crap to go around, (anyone remember that 250 meter oil lamp they were going to produce in Zhongshan, or somewhere like that?). What you see in the supertalls list here generally represents the best of what's being produced here, and even then, what you see in the renders isn't always what ends up getting produced, and there are often tons of corners cut in order to make time or budget requirements. Also, renders of huge masterplans and overall building schemes don't usually show the nitty gritty details of how the building is supposed to work, and often those detailed plans don't even get made, so what you may end up with is a physically beautiful building that is functionally a complete and total mess. Once again, there are loads of beautifully constructed buildings going up in China right now, but the pictures here don't tell the whole story.

Those problems exist anywhere. No grown man would expect things exactly like in the pictures I think.
