Hong Kong Architecture - Part II

Hong Kong has not joined in the race to build the tallest building in the World, unlike many Asian cities over the past decade. This could be due to the business mindedness of the developers here. They are more interested in the profits rather then stoking their ego. Most of the buildings here are quite practical and utilitarian, though there are some quite interesting structures if you care to look around. 

A group of office towers at the waterfront.

The Lippo Centre - one of the more interesting office towers in Hoing Kong. This was designed by American Architect Paul Rudolph.

The famous Hong Kong Club - designed by Harry Siedler.

One Peking in Kowloon - a relatively new office tower.

The Headquarters of Cheung Kong Holdings - the flagship of Hong Kong property tycoon Li Ka-Shing.


the slightly bended side looks similar to the one in Dubai..the hotel..architects have lost their creativeness? where had gone all the imaginations?

I do agree with you that many of the modern iconic buildings are beginning to look the same as designers riff and borrow ideas from each other. I am hoping that all this wave of iconic buildings will come to an end and we can go back to more sensible, back to basic architecture.
