Anyone recognize the lovely city on the desktop background of Apple's Cinema HD?

And has anyone seen the new Celine Dion video (I know, I hate her too, but there's a gorgeous view in a few shots).

...better known as the Bank of China Tower.

I've actually done some installation work in that building and the floors are all uneven. The construction was really crappy.

Personally, my favorite in HK is still the HK Bank building, designed by the brilliant Lord Foster (who also designed the breathtaking airport terminal at Chek Lap Kok, and whose design has just been chosen for a massive West Kowloon harbourside project.

Yeah, the HK bank lobby is cool as well as the outside, still looks as ultra-modern now as it did when it was built. Tonton, *all* I.M. Pei buildings are crap on the inside...

I stare at two I.M. Pei buildings all day long--twin residential towers on the Boston waterfront near the NE Aquarium. I am amazed that he can make concrete look so good.
