Bank of China, Hong Kong [electronic resource]

Created in 1990 by world renowned architect IM Pei, the Bank of China in Hong Kong put Asia on the skyscraper map and stands like a diamond amongst the island's forest of towers. But behind the architecture lies a tall political tale-one of a global superpower marking its territory. China wanted the world to know that Hong Kong would soon be under its rule-and used this skyscraper to prove it. But with only a small budget to make a big statement, building this tower wasn't easy-especially when its fiercest rival had built the most expensive tower in the world literally next door.

2 International Finance Center, Hong Kong [electronic resource]

Stunning skylines are fuelled by money-and Hong Kong has one of the most stunning in the world. With a lack of land on the island, the only way is up. The most prized-and expensive-plot is the financial district of Central where one skyscraper towers above the rest, star of Batman movies and gleaming white pillar of capitalism, 2 International Finance Center. To ensure the developers made a healthy return on their investment, 2IFC's architects had to not just make the tower look good to lure high paying tenants-but ensure that literally every inch of the skyscraper's design paid back.
