If I'm not mistaken "hi tech" is a particular style of architectural design, as normbeef mentioned heavilly represented in the UK.
Its about making architecture with the latest materials and shapes. This should -ofcourse- be visible from the outside. Lots of glass, steel and complex prefbricated building components. Installations (HVAC) dont neccesarily need to be on the outside, as long as they are state of the art (they must FEEL hi tech).
Hi tech is opposed by lo tech - architecture that makes intelligent use of simple construction techniques and preferably of no installations at all.
