2-IFC because of its height, maybe.

Tough choice! BoC is more unique, but 2-IFC building is awesome as well.

We're talking about iconic buildings and there's no building as unique as the BoC unless the BDNI Centre in Jakarta is built.

2iFC is more impressive for sure.
As other people have said - seeing 2iFC from Kowloon for the
first time is very impressive. It's size is astonishing.

But I think BOC is a better design (still love 2iFC though) so
thats what I voted for...

Bank of China!!!

2-IFC is definitely elegant, but the BOC is just much more interesting to look at. a truly beautiful design. the building changes as you move around it. Structural Expressionism at its best!

I think that the BoC is more unique. Secondly this tower is older, so more people have seen it on pictures.
