Skyscraper came into our life after steel (as building material of main structure) and elevator had been born. Skyscraper is a product of industrial revolution. Skyscraper is an icon of modern civilization.

Maybe you like the cozy country life. But you have to accept skyscrapers if you wanna live in metropolis.

AGREE, there are now more humans alive, that is; living, breathing, consuming, and OCCUPYING space on or in, this tiny speck of cosmic dust; than have EVER been born, lived, and died BEFORE NOW.
Life is mostly froth and bubble, but two things stand like stone. Kindness in anothers trouble, and .courage in your own. Annon.

Of course No.

We need to build more skyscrapers in metropolis, such as Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzh ...

Then it needs to be equallly populated as much as eastern China.

One tall skyscraper can lead to longer and larger flourish of the district on which the skyscraper is located .

I think there is no definitely answer to yes or no, which is depend on city lay-out of the local government.

Skyscrapers have been built in the West for thousands of years, they are NOT the "icon of modern civ ...

hahahaa...

The term "skyscraper" was first applied to buildings of steel framed construction of at least 10 storeys in the late 19th century

The first steel frame skyscraper was the Home Insurance Building (originally 10 storeys with a height of 42 m or 138 ft) in Chicago, Illinois in 1885.

What is the chief characteristic of the tall office building? It is lofty. It must be tall. The force and power of altitude must be in it, the glory and pride of exaltation must be in it. It must be every inch a proud and soaring thing, rising in sheer exaltation that from bottom to top it is a unit without a single dissenting line.


Louis Sullivan's The Tall Office Building Artistically Considered (1896)  from wikipedia

Oh, we used to write "elevators" in formal English, not in oral English.
