I love to overlook a remarkable skyline just like anybody else, and Hong Kong is absolutely killing the game when it comes to down to it; after all, Hong Kong Island alone is just brimming with towering skyscrapers and lavish sky high condos at every turn.
Additionally, I’ve always been interested in architecture and innovative technical design for as long as I can remember, and that’s why I love Hong Kong’s Lippo Centre.
Hong Kong’s Lippo Centre consists of two twin-tower skyscraper buildings that are probably the most peculiar and yet mind-blowingly awesome structures I’ve ever laid eyes upon.
Designed by Australian architect Paul Rudolph and completed in 1988, the buildings have become one of Hong Kong’s most popular landmarks.
Lippo Tower I contains 46 stories and stands at a height of 186-meters, while Lippo Tower II is equipped with 42 stories at a height of 172 meters.
Every time I look up the Lippo Centre I can’t help but feel the overwhelming sensation of powerful business developments and deals taking place within its walls. And, much like the iconic large and mighty charging bull that symbolizes the aggressive energy and strength of Wall Street, the Lippo Centre, in my opinion, equally depicts Hong Kong’s role as an advanced and economically successful powerhouse in the world.
The Lippo Centre also provides a retail shopping center on its ground level that is open to the public, though much of the complex is used for private office space belonging to various organizations. With that in mind, laying your eyes upon its incredibly distinctive design and snapping a few photos is enough to enjoy this landmark attraction.
Directions to Lippo Centre in Hong Kong: Hop on a Subway to Central Station or Admiralty Station, both of which are located on Hong Kong Island. Follow the signs in the subway to direct you to the Lippo Centre.
