From The Melbourne Urbanist
Do Great Buildings Make Great Cities?

New York has some great buildings because the city is great. Athens has the Parthenon because it was a great city, not the other way around. Bilbao doubtless has many virtues, but I haven’t heard it described too often as one of the world’s great cities just because its got a Guggenheim.

It is very conceptual that the great buildings make great city. These building would design by the great designer and it increase the architecture of the city. And select the best place and make good features.
