Q1

Li Xiaodong’s architecture combines his explorations of ideas with rational thinking based on inquiries into the concept of space, in the Chinese context. His works are influenced by both their cultural and climatic context and seek to capture the essence of their locations. Li’s designs achieve tranquility and harmony in terms of space, light and structured order.

AIA Hong Kong Building Tour - Asia Society Hong Kong Center
Venue:Asia Society Hong Kong Center
Description:

asia society Tour

Located in the heart of the central business district, the Asia Society Hong Kong Center (the “Center”) is situated at the Old Victoria Barracks, Former Explosives Magazine site. Steeped in history, cultural significance and natural beauty it is an excellent example of Conservation Architecture in Hong Kong.
The 1,364 hectare site, which houses a group of four former British military buildings, was originally built by the British Army in the mid-19th century for explosives and ammunition production and storage. Subsequently expanded and then taken over by the Royal Navy in the early 20th century, the site was abandoned in the 1990s until it was granted to the Center by the HKSAR Government for adaptive reuse. An integral part of the British military lands and one of the few remaining sites of the Victoria Cantonment, the site is an important and tangible link to Hong Kong’s colonial past.
Through the vision of internationally acclaimed Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects and as a result of careful conservation, restoration and adaptive reuse, the site was successfully transformed into a cultural, artistic and intellectual hub in 2012. The Center creatively combines new construction with four former military buildings, three of which are listed as Grade 1 Historic Buildings, while the fourth, a post-war utilitarian building located down the hill from the compound, is Grade 2 listed. Today the site is home to a stunning, multi-purpose Entrance Pavilion that is linked by a double-decker footbridge to the heritage site, which now houses a gallery, theatre, offices and function rooms.
The Center combines heritage conservation with a distinctive modern aesthetic allowing it to extend its educational programs to the larger community and received an AIA National Honor Award in 2016.

AIA Hong Kong Building Tour - <br/>St. Andrew's Church Life Centre, Kowloon
Venue:St. Andrew’s Church Life Centre
Description:

SAC Life Centre tour

St. Andrew’s Church occupies a century-old, heritage-listed site on Nathan Road, in the heart of the commercial district of Kowloon.  The church faced the dilemma of how to expand significantly without disrupting the character of its historic buildings and grounds.  The architect proposed a largely underground building, with natural light received via skylights in a landscaped green roof that restored the original courtyard to the historic church.  Known as the Life Centre, this contemporary addition was completed last year and features an 850-seat auditorium and youth fellowship rooms.  This project received the only AIA Hong Kong Honor Award in Architecture in 2015.

Join AIA Hong Kong for a first-hand account of the design and construction of this challenging project with its architect, Prof. Nelson Chen, FAIA, who started his firm in Hong Kong thirty years ago and continues to lead his award-winning practice while also now heading the School of Architecture at The Chinese University of Hong Kong.
