Bank of China

Bank of China in Shanghai
Although a long way from Sydney I thought I would include this building in China.

The Bank of China building in Shanghai in the French Concession area is a great example of Art Deco styling adapted for use on a modern building.

The imaginative blending of modern glass and building materials with classic Art Deco styling has been achieved with great success.

The soaring vertical lines give the building a monumental feel while the detail in the facade and lamps is straight out of the 1930s.
