I’ve blogged before about the round-cornered buildings in Hong Kong. Late last year when I visited, I found some new ones (new to me) and an old favorite.
The old Wanchai wet market (below) has been renovated into a retail shop, but the striking roundness has been nicely preserved.
It’s easy to miss this one, but the lower level overhang has a lovely round corner.
This isn’t just a round corner—it’s a beautiful part of Ohel Leah synagogue, a must-see on my trips to Hong Kong.
So this building in Sham Shui Po doesn’t really have a round corner, but it’s definitely not a typical one. So it counts to me!
But down the street, there’s no question about this one. The rooms in the round corners must be divine!
These were the round corners I saw in November! I hope they’ll stay in Hong Kong for decades to come, but you never know when it comes to architecture in Hong Kong.
