If the Bank of China Tower gives you a sense of déjà vu, you must be a Trekkie! A digitally modified image of the building was used as the Starfleet Communications Research Center in the TV series Star Trek: Voyager.
Bank of China Tower
Height: 367.4 metres
Architect: I.M. Pei
The prism-like façade of the 367.4m Bank of China Tower has become one of Hong Kong skyline’s most recognisable and appreciated features. The work of renowned Chinese–American architect I.M. Pei, the 70-storey building's asymmetrical form is pure geometry and has been compared to a bamboo plant, which extends its trunk successively higher with each new burst of growth. An observation deck on the 43rd floor provides good views of Central.
