According to the US-based Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, the world saw the completion of 128 skyscrapers in 2016, up from 114 in 2015. Of those, 84 came from China, a new record for the nation. China has topped the council’s completions list every year for nearly a decade.

Shenzhen, a city in southern China known for electronics manufacturing, stood out last year, completing 11 such skyscrapers. That’s more than the US and Australia combined. The city was also China’s hottest real estate market last year.
Next was Chongqing, noted for its fast GDP growth, and Guangzhou, which completed a new finance center with 111 stories and especially fast elevators.

All these cities have become faceless, soulless, uninspiring.

These Chinese cities are definitely not soulless. They are soul, each and every one of them.

Compared to HK, Singapore, Beijing and Shanghai Chinese cities have no soul and devoid of character
