Bank of China Tower ...

It's the coolest and most futuristic tower in the world.

I like the most #4 - Two International Finance Center.

It form just blends so nicely in the skyline. it's very estetic. The tower is very high and has a beautiful pattern.

It's just a-m-a-z-i-n-g!

2IFC! I think it's a great tower! Although BoC is pretty good too, but I prefer 2IFC.

BoC easily wins, not only in HK but in the whole world. 2IFC is a runner up.

Hard choice between BoC and 2IFC. I'll vote BoC because it's a very original building.

I too voted for 2IFC just to make it more interesting.. BoC and 2IFC are very close on my list. BoC really stands out in the skyline with its wonderous design while 2IFC just dominates with vertical height.
