Hopewell Center, Hong Kong



The swimming pool on the roof was meant to diffuse the cigaratte-looking building's fung shui problems.

Both of these are Holiday Inn hotel towers and the first one Holiday Inn North beach has 2 glass pannels at the botom of the pool which look straight down 28floors and from street level you can actually see people swimming in the sky
