They're cool, very glassy. Some buildings are quite misplaced though.

Thanks for the compliments, this thread shows only less than 20% of the effort so far, please check out Part II, Part III, and the recently added Part IV of the same title if you have not yet. And also Artistic decorations inside and outside of the buildings

The thread "Creativity in Hong Kong Architecture" created by hkskyline had a nice coverage on Lippo Center back in April, check it out if you have not yet.
