Stefan Krummeck, Terry Farrell & Partners examined the interconnection between tall buildings and urbanism at the CTBUH 8th World Congress in Dubai. Taking a look at Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore, Dubai, London, and New York and one will see that all developed and developing cities are running though the process of urbanization.
