Hong Kong is a city that has a long-entangled heritage between China and the west, which inevitably leads to its current vastly diversified culture. With the growth of architecture design and building technology, skyscrapers are built higher and higher. Hong Kong, as the richest and fast working speed city in the world, covers thousands of skyscrapers and high-rise buildings in its limited land. In Hong Kong, the structure engineers prefer to use light steel to construct the buildings. And the exterior wall is covered by a glass curtain. This kind of design is beautiful and modern but has some potential limitations.
