Hong Kong skyscrapers are fundamentally different from those used to see the average European resident
The East and China in particular, has always sought to achieve harmony between the world and man.
And even now, when the twenty-first century, there is not hurry to ignore the tradition in spite of modernity, and erected these strange “leaky” high-rise, which puzzled watching the inhabitants of Europe.
Hong Kong skyscrapers are fundamentally different from those used to see the average European resident. After all, Asian buildings have huge holes.
People with a practical turn of mind believe that this decision was taken by the architects to reduce the windage of the house, so that better resisted the wind, but only the true connoisseurs of Feng Shui and Eastern philosophy can give the correct answer.
The locals firmly believe that the prosperity they owe the dragons that descend from the mountains to the water to quench their thirst. Hong Kong is located between the mountains and the sea. And then follows simple logic.
If the shore line is completely closed buildings, it will close the way for the dragons that will cause failures for the population. Not to tempt fate on the strength of local developers leave huge “holes” in the buildings, sacrificing dozens of not-built apartments, but now the dragons are free to come down to the watering hole. Very caring people, these Chinese, really.
