I just got home to see this on my better monitor and I'm even more amazed. It's the right height, shape and lighting and makes a perfect addition to the Hong Kong skyline. Again, WOW.

Thanks for your the great photos, I like it very very much.
Before you posted photos, I supposed AIG has no lighting at all!
What about the front side of AIG ? NO lighting ?

Quote from www.aiggig.com

Quote:
AIG Tower stands at 1 Connaught Road Central, commanding harbour views from the site formerly occupied by The Furama Hotel, between The Ritz Carlton and Hutchison House. It will provide some 450,000 square feet of prime office space and is described as a ‘pure’ office building with prestigious street-level entrances and a ‘porte-cochere’ covered drive-in. AIG will be the anchor-tenant in the property, occupying six of the 26 office floors, each of between 13,000 -16,000 square feet.

The building is owned and developed by Bayshore Development Group Limited; a consortium formed by affiliates of AIG, CapitaLand and Lai Sun, and is designed by international architects Skidmore, Owings & Merrill LLP (SOM), whose other projects include Jin Mao Tower in Shanghai, Sears Tower in Chicago, Canary Wharf in London, and the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. SOM’s design of AIG Tower is inspired by two traditional icons of Hong Kong, namely the Chinese junk and the lantern. During the day, the Chinese junk image is represented by the high-rise profile of the building with its sail like form. This allusion also accounts for aspects of the design such as the detailing of the horizontal ‘struts’ on the curtain wall. At night, the lantern image dominates by inspiring a unique lighting concept captured in the curtain wall that gently illuminates the building and reinforces the transparency of its ‘skin’ like a lantern. Vertical fins rise from the curtain wall base facing Murray Road that lead up to the roof where powerful searchlights will project beams of light into the night sky. The overall design stands as a new landmark and icon on Hong Kong’s spectacular skyline.
