Half of the World’s tallest buildings will be in China

There will be no tall buildings from Africa. This is something every African should be angry about.

How well you are able to build tall and magnificent buildings demonstrate how smart, wealthy, and modern your society is.

Africa should at least try to build one 1,800 ft supertall. It would probably cost $1-2 billion dollars but it would be worth it.

Best cities for it

Lagos

Luanda

Johannesburg

Dar Es Salaam

Nairobi

(Maybe a freestanding structure for Accra)
