Guangzhou, China

#19

Guangzhou is a very modern city, yet it is called "the City of Flowers, as each of its spectacular skyscrapers is surrounded by grand green spaces and flower beds. Although it currently only contains 7 structures at over 200 metres tall, there are plenty of other high-rises, each displaying a design that stands out in its own respect. Many new supertalls are under construction and in 2007 alone 4 buildings topping 190m were built. The 391 metre, 80-floor, CITIC Plaza which appears transparent against the (unusually) clear blue sky is a aesthetically pleasing structure. This city is considered the 8th tallest in the world, but smog is a persistent problem here.
