JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA

#26

The "City of Gold". Johannesburg is the largest city in the world not built on or near a major water source. That alone makes it a phenomenon onto itself. The majority of the skyscrapers in the CBD are from the boom of the 70s and 80s. Three towers stand at over 200 meters and are the tallest and most grand structures in all of Africa. The city has promised to rejuvenate its CBD with more buildings, but the fact still remains that the nightlife, shopping and the culture is still very much alive. Because of the geography and topography, the city is also very "planned" in a grid iron fashion, which gives it a unique look.
