AIA Hong Kong/ Perspective Brain Trust Series: “Art, Architecture and Culture” 

Macau: The Paradox of Cultural Heritage and Contemporary Development

The Talk
Can cultural heritage and contemporary gaming industry co-exist?  Join us for the third session in the 2013 Brain Trust Series on Art, Architecture and Culture as we speak with experts to look at Macau and explore the paradox of cultural heritage and contemporary development.  Are there vestiges of a historic and multicultural past that can serve as points of reference for this 24-hour modern city of casinos and tourism?  Come share your perspectives.
