A lot ?
Yes. Mostly people from non-skyscraper websites or news websites.A lot ?
Well that's not quite true. Just look at the density level in the city-proper of Paris which has very few people living in skyscrapers (with the majority living in low and mid rise apartment buildings), and a density of about 21,000/km2. China has about 1,403,500,365 people living in it. If they were all living as densely of Paris, that would require about 66,826.2 km2 which would be about 0.7% of China's land area of 9,596,961 km2. Less than one percent. Less total land than what Wikipedia lists for the combined land covered by the US's three largest metro areas (about 75,372 km2).unless people want the entire planet to be urban, which sadly some people do, skyscrapers are very necessary. Imagine modern China without skyscrapers. There wouldn't be any natural beauty left. It'd be all mountains and an ocean of lowrise and midrise housing. Also, office parks. Lots of people have strong feelings about office parks
