Hong Kong convention centre ~ Hong Kong, China
Nov 13 2001

Designed to resemble a bird taking off in flight, the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition centre sits on a chunk of reclaimed land on the island overlooking Victoria harbor. This building was the site of the June 30 1997 handover ceremony that returned Hong Kong and the New Territories to China. If only the symbol of the bird taking flight had carried over to Hong Kong's economy following the handover (or "The Chinese take-away" as I've heard it called).
