City Planners -Psychology: Why People Get Famous

If you could clone one element from another city you’ve visited — a building, a cultural institution, a common street food, etc. — and bring it back to your own hometown, what would it be?

A high rises building comes into my mind, Burj Kalifa would be an ideal choice for me, the tallest building on earth with everything inside it. I would use the first 20 floor as shopping center and trade place, and the rest are divided into apartment units, hotel, and office. It would be an independent city inside a city!

So you know why we fantasize about these things? It’s because of the need for us to have an icon, to be an icon and identified with it. People build statues around the world to commemorate revolutionary person, the inventor of something, the one who do something that change the world. And we worhsip them, not only because of their invention or act, but for their willingness to increase the quality of other people life.

These iconic people, or people who build iconic goods and architectures are famous because they care about other, they care about the environment around them. And in effect, people care about them now. Starting today, try to enhance other’s quality of life and maybe, just maybe someday they’ll appraciate what you’ve done.
