    Since gaining World Heritage Site status in 2003, the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, on the outskirts of West London, has seen several additions to its building stock. This work is part of a 30-year master plan for the garden to guide the historic site's future development.

    When the British occupied a "barren rock" following the First Opium War in 1841, Foreign Secretary Lord Palmerston was "greatly mortified and disappointed" at the island's perceived worthlessness. Since then, however, Hong Kong has become one of the world's most important entrepreneurial, architectural, banking, and trading centers.
