“KOALA_BLDNG” BONDCENTRE / LIPPOCENTRE

The Lippo Centre (simplified Chinese: 力宝中心; traditional Chinese: 力寶中心; pinyinlìbǎo zhōngxīn; jyutping: lik6 bou2 zung1 sam1) is a pair of twin office towers in Hong Kong, previously known as the Bond Center (奔達中心). The buildings are located at 89 Queensway, in Admiralty on Hong Kong Island. They were taken over by the Lippo Group after the collapse of the Bond Corporation. The height of the taller tower is 186m.

The buildings, completed in 1988, were dubbed “The Koala Tree” because they resemble koalas clutching a tree. The buildings were designed by American architect Paul Rudolph[2], who strove to relieve the traditional severity of skyscraper walls by designing clusters of obtruding windows.
