Hong Kong Architecture - Part I
Another landmark building - the Bank of China. This building was designed by renown American Chinese Architect I.M. Pei. It was meant to upstage the Hong Kong and Shanghai Bank building, and to a certain extent it succeeded through it's sheer aggressive stance. When the design was first unveiled, it was widely criticized as being not good Feng Shui due to the many sharp corners. Later on it was revealed that the sharp corners were deliberately introduced to weaken other financial instutitions in Hong Kong in order to ensure the BOC's eminence. Beileve it or not !
