Bank of China Tower

Recommended
Opened in 1990, the Bank of China Tower was designed by IM Pei (the architect of the Pyramid at the Louvre in Paris) to resemble a pile of slender triangles representing a bamboo shoot. It has been well received by those who attach importance to symbols, as in China bamboo symbolises prosperity, but much less so by feng shui followers, who find the corners of the building inauspiciously sharp. With its dark glass panes reflecting its surroundings, this unusual tower is taller by several metres than its rival, the HSBC Tower.
