Hong Kong Shanghai Bank of China
    Central Distric




 Architect by Norman Foster in 1979-86, building type is skyscraper commercial office tower, bank headquarters. Construction system is steel frame and glass of High-Tech Modern style. Dramatic exoskeleton trusses, interior atrium, escalator entry through glazed atrium floor. Probably the best known, and most widely publicized building of the decade, largely because it was claimed to have cost more money than any other building to erect. Notwithstanding that kind of publicity and the building's subsequent overshadowing by far inferior competitors, it remains a unique architectural achievement and a small wonder of the modern age.
