About this creation
This model is approximately 1/650th scale, similar to my other skyscrapers.

5 Photos available on Brickshelf.com

Continuing my tour of Asia, I realized rather embarrassingly that I didn't have anything in my collection from one of the greatest skyscraper cities - Hong Kong.

Designed by CÚsar Pelli, Two International Finance Centre was the tallest building in Hong Kong when completed in 2003. It has since been surpassed by the International Commerce Centre that sits across the harbor in Kowloon. The architecture features gradual setbacks that are commonly found with Pelli.



The office tower is 1351ft tall and contains 88 floors. It is topped by a distinctive curving sculptural crown, modeled here with claw elements. Like many of my models, the tower is comprised of two stud tall cross sections held together with technic pins. This prevents the tiles featured on the facade from warping.




The tower is part of a larger complex that is not modeled here. The complex includes a shopping center, hotel, and another office tower, One International Fiance Centre which is similarly styled yet only about half the height of its taller sibling.





One final look.

Quoting david drake You know, I don't recall ever seeing KowLoon's 118 story ICC via brick...
ICC would be neat, but the apparent simple appearance is deceptive. The top 1/3rd angles slightly inward.

Quoting Rocco Buttliere I'd imagine you'd be very happy if the new 1x2 curved slope were available in trans-clear!
No doubt. Perhaps a bit too much curvature for this application, but still a very useful part.

Love this bldg, saw a movie in the podium mall theater once. And yeah, from the rooftop bar on top of the 118 floor ICC across the harbor, this giant tower looks short. But from the ferry port at the base, it's true grandeur is indisputable. So enough of that. The idea of keeping tiled plates short is a really good idea to avoid the warping. I did something like this, not intending to, but the design naturally required it, on the HK Lippo Ctr I built last. It's ALWAYS a pleasure to see what you build as you always NAIL IT! And this is no exception. You know, I don't recall ever seeing KowLoon's 118 story ICC via brick...
