Discussion on Hopewell Centre, Hong Kong by Duncan Michael, Thomas K. C. Wan and James Hannon

Mr W. E. A. Skinner (F): I am particularly interested in tall buildings in Hong Kong, as the practice of which I am a member has been responsible for a number of such buildings and Hong Kong remains one of the few parts of the world where one can practice the art of building tall. Indeed, prior to the completion of the Hopewell Centre, our Connaught Centre was the tallest building in the colony. It is now dwarfed by the new edifice. It would perhaps be appropriate to make a few comparisons between the two buildings.
