Minecraft - Bank of China Tower by MinecraftArchitect90 Minecraft - Bank of China Tower by MinecraftArchitect90
My Minecraft build of the Bank of China Tower, built & designed by me, with no editors used.
Built out of stained glass & iron blocks.
Scale is 1:2 of the real tower.
Want to give a shout out to deviant user MaxCheng95 for having faith in me for building something Hong Kong based! :D

Update: Now in 2560 x 1440p

Info:

A prominent landmark in the city of Hong Kong, the Bank of China Tower stands as a unique structure that graces the city's skyline with it's triangular facade all around the building, giving the tower it's distinctive appearance. The tower is the headquarters of the Bank of China, one of Asia's largest financial institutions.

Construction of the tower began in 1985 following much controversy over the design; Feng Shui practitioners did not like the sharp-edged design motif, arguing that the tower resembles a meat-cleaver from certain angles. Despite that however, the tower was completed & opened in 1990, and was the tallest building in Asia until 1992. The tower stands at a height of 367 meters, has a floor count of 70, and has 49 lifts.

Tourists visiting Hong Kong can get a good view of the city via the observation deck on the 43rd floor.

The Bank of China Tower stands as a great landmark in one of the world's leading financial centers & shopping destinations, and as undeniably one of the most unique skyscrapers in the world.

It can boil down to these: planning, patience, & attention to detail. Every builder has their own methods but I'll let you in on some of mine. Use geometric shapes & especially odd numbers in your planning stages as much as possible to guarantee accurate proportions. Before committing to the big stuff map out all your features like windows before building them so you know your proportions are spot on. Lately I'm using three-block layers for external walls for adding more features for windows & decoration. Sorry for this long reply, but hope this has been insightful for you :)

It took me three hours straight, it took a lot of calculation to get the slope right from the central point. Accuracy was the biggest priority in this one.
