The orange of ELEMENTS looks weird. The colour just doesn't match with the complex.

It's grown quite a bit since I was last in HK (May). The cladding is second to none!

Hmm...my pictures from early September 2002 showed a much more complete 2IFC. Maybe they got their dates wrong.

The photos really contrast the size difference between the two buildings. The floorplates of 2IFC from that construction shot look much smaller than ICC.

I like the fact that, because of the harbour distance between this and 2-IFC (when it's completed), it won't overpower the IFC as the SWFC already does the Jin Mao, despite the great (69 metres) height difference between the two.

Just a reminder:

Is it just me, or does Hong Kong seem to have more professional landscape photographers than the rest of the world combined...?
