THE HONG KONG CONVENTION AND EXHIBITION CENTRE (HKCEC)

The Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre (HKCEC) is one of the two major concert, convention and exhibition venues in Hong Kong, along with AsiaWorld-Expo. Across Victoria Harbour from Hotel ICON, it is located in Wan Chai North. The original building was built on reclaimed land off Gloucester Road in 1988, when the glass curtain wall overlooking the harbour on three sides was the world's largest. The second construction phase took place between 1994 and 1997, and features a distinctive bird-like rooftop, which has also been described as a turtle.

THE LEGCO BUILDING

The LEGCO Building. Another jewel in the Region's architectural heritage, The Legislative Council Building of Hong Kong was the home of the former Supreme Court until 1985, when it became home to the Legislative Council of Hong Kong. Located in Central along the east side of Statue Square, it was opened in 1912 and is now one of the Region's 92 declared monuments. Neo-classical in style, it was designed by Sir Aston Webb and Ingress Bell, the British architect responsible for London's Buckingham Palace and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Following the government's move to the Tamar site in 2011, the LEGCO building will revert back to its former use as home to the Court of Final Appeal.
