Well, yes, of course. I'm just basing my posts off of the list provided.

Well who has been to all those cities ? Not everybody for sure. On your list I have only been to SF and Montreal ... I'd say both are comparable, SF felt very small, Montreal maybe bigger but more generic I guess (still a nice city)

LOL!!! Speaking of, though... I have a friend who moved to Shanghai a few years ago, and he explained to me that, while it appears to be impressive from the outside, a lot of those buildings end up being a waste of government money, as they have a habit of building HUGE structures with no plan in sight. Apparently, the government likes to plant giant stadiums and skyscrapers everywhere for no reason other than to impress, and they end up being a waste of space.

^strange, the city is actually a step behind demand. It underperforms quite a bit (not hard as it has to house up to 10,000 newcomers a DAY).

I would imagine your friend is talking about the trophy projects that every mayor likes, giant swimming centres, huge art spaces, underused opera houses etc. The city has just built the world's largest metro (okay that's needed), largest art gallery, science museum, cruise ship port, sports centre. I suppose the taxes have to go somewhere in a capitalist-socialist set up.

Not at least anyone of those cities.

My answer would be something like Delhi or Mumbai.

Montreal a generic city? In the North American context?

Perhaps architecturally a bit, but not in any other way...
