If skylines around the world are looking too much the same, is this because the new and important buildings are done by the big names (designers) from far away and not by the locals or the opposite is true? Not only skyscrapers but, museums, civic center, concert halls, bridges, libraries, opera houses all give cities part of their identity. This makes us ponder, that how do we reclaim our cities to stand out from each other in the next centuries. What are the urban programs that can be useful to the inhabitants and can architecture be an icon instead of an object?
