The unique exterior turns the center into an iconic landmark in the city. The taller of the two buildings is called Lippo Centre 2, and reaches the height of 186 meters, while Lippo Centre 1 is "only" 172 meters.
The centre is located at a great location in the city center. From the buildings, a beautiful view can be seen of Hong Kong park nearby.
The post-modern style of the two similar buildings, designed with reflective glass, is the responsibility of the architect Paul Marvin Rudolph, in cooperation with Wong & Ouyang. Rudolph, whose works are known for their brutal, concrete-based style, designed a very modern complex, completely different from the architectural and design style that is usually identified with him.
An interesting fact in the history of the building has to do with the number of companies who collapsed, or were bankrupted, while renting offices in the building. Local advisors Sahi Feng shui conclude that the building has bad Fend Shui. They tied this reason to the C shaped windows, which reminds of a koala climbing a tree. The Feng shui advisors of the builders deny this and say the building was given approval of wellness.
By the way, the shapes of these koalas gave the centres the nickname "koala buildings."
