The 4D Cityscape Hong Kong Time Puzzle recreates Hong Kong’s world famous skyline, not only in three-dimension, using scale-model buildings, but also along the fourth dimension of time - spanning 98 years of architectural history. The puzzle includes 81 building replicas that depict the Hong Kong Skyline as it appeared as far back as 1912, through to 2010 with the completion of the I.C.C. International Commerce Center.
The base of the puzzle is a traditional 2D jigsaw puzzle that forms the city's street layout, islands, and mountains. Once the puzzle base is complete, the vertical building of Hong Kong begins by placing 81 buildings and skyscrapers in chronological time sequence, following the enclosed 4D Time Poster.

- Learn how Hong Kong developed and evolved
- Explore historic buildings and architectural styles
