^ yes I realize I'm responding to one of the banned...
I agree with this in principle, but China is nowhere near behaving like a "family of hamsters". Its, of course, inevitable that a country with a population so large will continue to grow, but with their population restrictions, their population will inevitably hit a peak, and it probably won't be decades away. Just saying. Maybe its for the best? (even though I don't really believe in population control)
However, I have to admit that I'm jealous of the amount of building going on in shanghai and beijing, even with all the building going on in chicago. Do they need any of these proposals to be built? who knows. Would a winning bid being built be amazing? absolutely. like I said, I'm jealous of a lot of the designs in there.
Now, I don't want it to seem like I'm trolling or anything, but no how many amazing things shanghai could potentially build, I'll never get over how bad the oriental pearl is. But I'm sure that building has had to have been beaten so many times that mentioning it negatively is automatically trolling.
