HSBC Building, Hong Kong

A view of the Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation main building in Hong Kong, another landmark in the Central District:

The old Bank of China building is in the foreground on the right, and Cheung Kong Center (headquarters of Li Ka SHing, Hong Kong’s richest man) is in front on the left.

I always thought that the HSBC building must have been designed by the same person who designed the “new” Lloyds Building in London:

… but it wasn’t.  Both are projects that were conceived in the late 1970s and early 1980s, so I guess the “machine look” was going around then.
