Commie blocks... haha... (sorry)
I was just curious what the style is known as.

Hello to all,

My first post here and I see some great shots. I'm a aviation Photographer mainly but always had an interest in tall/interesting buildings so all I have to do now is get my bum out there and take some shots the numerous tall buildings in Hong Kong

Great site, hope to add some pics soon.

Rgds
