Bank of China Tower information
The awesome 70-storey Bank of China Tower designed by IM Pei rises from the ground like a cube, and is then successively reduced, quarter by quarter, until the south-facing side is left to rise on its own. Some geomancers believe the four prisms are negative symbols; being the opposite of circles, these triangles contradict what circles suggest – money, union and perfection.
The lobby of the BOC Tower features the Prehistoric Story Room (open 9am to 6pm, closed Tuesday), a small exhibition depicting Earth's life history through fossil displays.
