Hong Kong architecture
Soon, there will be much more architecture in Hong Kong. This is the land reclamation going on on Hong Kong island. We noted that this is right in front of the reknown Mandarin Oriental which is still selling harbour views. Hmm. Maybe not for much longer. And I am betting they don't mention the current foreground of those views. Eventually there will be more shiny sky scrapers like these.
Some buildings - like the new convention centre are relatively low rise. And there are still some tiny street stalls nestled amongst the sky scrapers.
But in general terms. Hong Kong goes up. And up. Even these residential buildings.
And so the airconditioners go on the outside. Which may not look pretty but - is it just me- or is there a quilt/ embroidery pattern here?!
