Gold is universally acknowledged, and especially by the Chinese, as the color of wealth. During the building's develeopment, the designers were given a simple instruction: to create a straightforward building with no embellishments, as long as it was in gold!
Completed in 1982, the highrise was nicknamed 'The Amah's Tooth' because its striking color makes it stand out much like the gold tooth in an old granny's smile.
For some, the building adds a golden sparkle that cuts the monotony on the city's silver-grey skyline. For others, the tower is an eyesore, sticking out like a sore thumb.
