||Created in 1990 by world renowned architect IM Pei, the Bank of China in Hong Kong put Asia on the skyscraper map and stands like a diamond amongst the island's forest of towers. But behind the architecture lies a tall political tale-one of a global superpower marking its territory. China wanted the world to know that Hong Kong would soon be under its rule-and used this skyscraper to prove it. But with only a small budget to make a big statement, building this tower wasn't easy-especially when its fiercest rival had built the most expensive tower in the world literally next door.
