Maryam & Abbas, HSBC HongKong, 2010
Abbas and Maryam with two design favourites of mine. The Maclaren buggy was fairly cheap, under US$100, but was used by both kids and travelled around the world (a few times).
The second design favourite of mine is the building they are in, the HSBC HQ in Queens Road, Central, Hong Kong. It's a Norman Foster design and provides a sense of occasion that few other utilitarian buildings do.

Many modern airports have ceilings that make them look like the interiors of warehouse style hardware stores. Check Lap Kok doesn't and I think in part it is due to its ceiling.
