The octagonal buildings, clad with a dark blue refractive glass curtain wall, were designed by American architect Paul Rudolph who was working at the time as a design consultant for Wong & Ouyang. The buildings’ main construction contractor was Hip Hing Construction.

In 1988, Rudolph wrote: “The aesthetic intent is to…give the building ‘presence’ when seen at a great distance, from the middle distance, and from close distance, and from close hand. At the same time, it is intended that the building inhabit the sky, and become dematerialized by reflecting the ever changing light.”

The late muralist-artist Gerard D’Alton Henderson, who designed the walls in the Hong Kong Mandarin Oriental Hotel, enriched the lobby with dramatic bas-relief murals.

The Lippo Centre is connected to the Central Elevated Walkway network of footbridges.

Location: 89 Queensway, Wan Chai, Hong Kong, Eastern Asia
