Please join us for a building tour of Tai Kwun : Centre for Heritage and Arts

The Central Police Station (Tai Kwun) revitalisation project involved an integrated team of conservation specialists, researchers, architects and other professionals including: Herzog & de Meuron, Purcell and Rocco Design Architects.

The compound is comprised of three declared monuments: the former Central Police Station, the Central Magistracy and the Victoria Prison.

With a deep respect for authenticity in materials, techniques and design, 16 heritage buildings and several open spaces have been restored for adaptive reuse. Two new buildings have also been added, housing a world-class art gallery space and a 200-seat auditorium. Designed by the internationally renowned architectural practice Herzog & de Meuron, the new buildings’ facades draw inspiration from the granite walls surrounding this historic landmark.

What was once a closed-off part of Hong Kong will soon become an open and vibrant new venue for all to enjoy, with international standard facilities to foster the city’s art, leisure and cultural landscape.

 

The tour will be led by Chi-Yan Chan of Herzog & de Meuron and Denis Tsang of Rocco Design Architects.

AIA Hong Kong Building Tour - T · PARK
Venue:T • PARK
Description:

Please join us for a building tour of 2017 AIA Hong Kong Citation Award recipient, the T-Park in Tuen Mun.  Coach bus has been arranged.

T · PARK is the largest sludge treatment plant in the world with capacity to incinerate 2,000 tons of human waste each day. It reduces the volume of incoming material by 90% . Operated by 110 staff, this facility protects the natural environment by eliminating discharges into the sea – while generating power for 4,000 households and heat for three pools located in the spa next door. A desalination unit is used to meet freshwater requirements, and 1,000 trees were planted nearby as part of a carbon compensation program.

T · PARK occupies a 7 hectare site symbolizing the “journey from waste to energy” and was designed by internationally renowned French architect Claude Vasconi (1940 – 2009) with the Hong Kong Environmental Bureau. The streamlined, wave shape design of the building was inspired by the surrounding sea and hills, and makes the best use of sunlight, natural ventilation and green roofs to minimize energy consumption. The building has been certified as Provisional Platinum by Hong Kong Green Building Council.

This tour will visit the following spaces:

T· THEATRE – A video will introduce T PARK, one of the “green goals” for Hong Kong

T· HALL – The sludge treatment process will be explained using interactive models

T · GALLERY – View life-size models and plant operation through windows

T · SKY – To showcase upcycling concepts

T· CAFE – An eco-cafe featuring re-used and re-purposed materials

AIA Hong Kong Building Tour - Mount Pavilia
Venue:Mount Pavilia
Description:

Due to popular demand, this event is sold-out. 

Located on the idyllic eastern shore of the city, the Mount Pavilia complex was commissioned by New World Development as part of a lifestyle concept it calls The Artisanal Movement, which focuses on creativity, craftsmanship and community. The complex covers a site area of around 66,800 square meters. The east side is separated from The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology by a mountain range while the west side abuts Tai Po Tsai village. The complex combines low-rise housing with a landscaped sculpture park, a gallery and an on-site restaurant, as well as an organic food store. Each residential unit enjoys good views to the distant harbor, nearby mountains or garden.  A sweeping bridge connects the clubhouse buildings to form a gateway to the development, which includes 680 apartments set in 25,000 square meters of landscaping.

The building is comprised of white concrete and brick, with a delicate, perforated block work screen running along the facade of the upper floor. The clubhouse features a combination of flat and wavy glazed facades that face a sunken swimming pool, and contains lounges, game and music rooms, as well as sports courts and a gym. Adjoining it, the gallery space hosts a bar and restaurant on its ground floor, with an organic food market, a cafe and laundry services on the two levels above. The actual gallery is set on its uppermost floor.

Landscaping around the development provides residents with an approximately 400-metre-long hiking trail and 950-metre cycling track, while a play park is designed to cater to a range of age groups, from toddlers to older children. The gardens are intended to double as a space where children can learn about sustainability through hydroponics.
