I’m in the middle of a couple of busy weeks which have seen me in Japan and now Hong Kong and then after the weekend in Budapest I’m off to Las Vegas next week.
It was therefore great that we covered off the work we were doing here a little earlier then planned and I found myself with some down time to walk around Hong Kong.
I first visited Hong Kong in 2008 but we were staying in another part of town far away from the CBD. While I remember seeing the HSBC Building from a taxi cab it was great to actually be right in front of it.
I heard a lot about the Norman Foster designed HSBC building during my time studying architecture. I think from memory it was the most expensive building ever built up to that time.
The structure is certainly impressive when starting upwards at it.
