This 52-storey building was the tallest building in Hong Kong, in fact the first true skyscraper, when it was built in 1973. It has since been dwarfed by many, but still stands out clearly, partly because of an agreement made with the government to limit the height of any buildings to its north i.e. between it and the harbour.
It’s porthole-inspired design has earned it an easily remembered nickname: “House of a Thousand Arseholes”

Next week’s theme will be row – I’ll leave you to decide whether that rhymes with toe or with bough (you can’t say the English language is boring or predictable!).
