Photographer's Note

I was going back to my hotel, located in a remote part of the town.
Statue Square is surrounded by impressive buildings. At left you can see Bank of China Building, 367 meters high. It was the highest of the world between 1989-92 being the first building to be more then 300 meters high outside USA.
It was created by the same architect who created the Louvre pyramid.When it was created the owners were afraid the city would be ruled by the same laws of China and because this the skyscraper was build in a way that it could be dismantled and mounted in another part of the world if necessary.
This was the only bank whose building didn't pay attention to feng shui rules. Locals say it resembles a kitchen axe.
The other building at right is Cheung Tower Center (1999).
I used my cellphone.

Eu estava voltando ao meu hotel, que ficava numa regio remota da cidade.
A Praa da Esttua est rodeada de prdios incrveis. esquerda vemos o Banco da China com 367 metros de altura, foi o maior prdio do mundo entre 1989-92 e o primeiro do mundo com mais de 300 metros fora dos EUA.
Foi criado pelo mesmo arquiteto que criou a pirmide do Louvre. Quando o prdio estava para ser erguido os donos temiam que a cidade ao passar s mos da China sofresse mudanas bruscas e ento o prdio foi feito de maneira a ser desmontvel, possibilitando que ele pudesse ser remontado em outra parte do mundo caso necessrio.
Esse foi o nico prdio de banco da cidade que no usou as regras do feng shui, os nativos o chamam de machadinha de cozinha.
