This buildng is far from being a copycat of his other designs.Just look at how the structural grid(or lack of it) dictates the overall shape of the building.It's the opposite of most of his other buildings where the surface is the main theme.

@Car L Thanks a lot for the picture!

HONG KONG | Opus Hong Kong | 12 fl | U/C

Hong Kong Residential

OPUS HONG KONG

The first residential development in Asia undertaken by the Pritzker Prize-winning architect Frank Gehry, OPUS HONG KONG at the Peak offers an unprecedented standard of luxury living in Hong Kong's most distinctive neighbourhood.

With a size of 6,000 sq ft, each exclusive residence overlooks the Victoria Harbour, and is presented to offer highly personal space in a most sough-after location.

The project is expected to complete by 2012.

Not bad at all. Short for HK, but unique in it's design, i like it.

But... does it have any relation with Opus Dei?

I looked up to it from Wanchai yesterday!

The location is really awesome. That place must have amazing views. Any idea on the price. It reminds me a bit of that building in Prague.

How did they get this built. Is the area not protected? I hope this is the last one so we can keep as much green visible.

Most of it is rental, and from the news reports it's going for HK$100/sq foot (approx $600k/mth).
