High Rises and Skyscapers

A collection of high rises and skyscrapers from around the world.

Reflections on an unusual interlocking highrise tower in Hong Kong. We saw this one from the bus as we went by, but there are two interlocking towers of 40 plus stories, now called the Lippo Centre, designed by Paul Rudolph.Reflections on an unusual interlocking high rise in Hong KongBangkok highrise reflection (Thailand).

      • The lobby was amazing like all buildings in HK are ..so much marble. I worked on the 37th floor so the views were fabulous ..I don’t think there’s apartments only offices. It changed its name because of the scandal around Alan Bond at the time

      • If I ever get back to Hong Kong I’ll have to go inside more buildings – in fact, I think I’ll have to go inside more office buildings period – something new to explore. And I’ll have to look up the scandal – I love stories like that!
