Hong Kong’s superstitious skyline.

Like the gaping holes in the middle of buildings to let dragons fly through or cannon-like structures installed to deflect bad “qi” (pronounced chi). The main belief in feng shui is that destiny is bound to the environment, so good fortune and harmony can be invited in and bad energy can be warded off by arranging objects and buildings around us. It's an ancient Chinese practice that has come to define Hong Kong's skyline. In this episode of Borders, we explore feng shui principles, explain the circumstances that allowed it to flourish in Hong Kong and take a look at the unique designs around the city. Vox Borders is an international documentary series by Emmy-nominated producer Johnny Harris exploring life at the edge of nations. For more, visit vox.com/borders.

It is called Vortex Shedding of wind load. Without those holes, the buildind would not be as calm.

here in Jakarta Indonesia, almost all skycrapers have no 4th floor, instead they usually 3A floor, why? because all developers here own by Chinese, and 4 is badluck number because its chinese pronunciation similar to "dead" word in Chinese supersition, so we don`t have 4th floor

For all you anti interior design feng shui people (that do exist for some reason) I hope you guys realize that sometimes it's just a fancy way of describing interior design 101.
It's all about the flow, it's described as energy or something, but in general it just means where people enter the room, where they go, where they are looking, and what the furniture is like.

It sounds like supernatural stuff in stories and sometimes it is but most of the time it's just a really good way of using common sense to your best ability.
Like you wouldn't want the end of your bed to be facing the door directly, that's just weird. And you don't want the head of the bed to be against a window.

One of the most advanced city, ruled by made up dogmas like this while so many residents live in absolute poverty.
