At 179m high the HSBC Bank seems tiny now relative to recent Hong Kong skyscrapers but at the time became world-famous for its strong concept and clean expression of technology and structure. Norman Foster combines some ideas from Lloyds building in London with local requirements to creat a simple but striking tower.
