The Hong Kong Institution of Engineers is asking the public to choose the top 10 engineering masterpieces in the city built within the last decade. Twenty projects were shortlisted, including the Stonecutters Bridge, the second longest cable-stayed bridge in the world; the 118-story International Commerce Center, currently the tallest in Hong Kong; and the Harbour Area Treatment Scheme. "The projects epitomize the role engineers play in everyday life ... and illustrate engineers’ innovation and contribution to the society," Justin McGar writes.
