A Junk in the Daytime but a Chinese Lantern at Night
SOM has designed and built the AIG Tower in Central after the Convention and Exhibition Centre (Phase 2) in Wan Chai. The building resembles a junk in the daytime but a Chinese lantern at night, which can be undersood as the two elements of Hong Kong. I like the concept a lot as the local characteristics are considered and put into the building.
