My Life at Li Po Chun United World College of Hong Kong 2011-2013

Structured

I took this picture in Central before my university interview and I quite like it, because it captures the many different architecture styles and some of the most distinctive buildings you can find in Hong Kong. In the background you can see one of the Lippo Towers, two twin skyscrapers built in the late 80s, as well as the Bank of China Tower, composed of several glass triangles. The Bank of China Tower was designed by the same architect as the Louvre in Paris, and is – due to its triangles – considered the most aggressive building in the world according to the concept of Feng Shui. In the front you can recognize the Legislative Council Building of Hong Kong – the only building that doesn’t look as modern but rather “European” behind all the trees – which was designed by the same architect who was also in charge of the eastern side of Buckingham Palace in London. All around there are small gardens and places to relax, and of course many other glass skyscrapers that seem to change their facade’s color according to the sky.
