Details :

The Central District of Hong Kong has world-renowned reputation of being a financial hub with numerous modernised skyscrapers, whilst at different corners of the district you would still be able to find fascinating historic buildings which silently tell the stories of Hong Kong since the earliest colonial era of 1847.  In fact, many of the old sites in Central are declared monuments or graded historic buildings which are under preservation and worth a visit.

 

Law Society Hong Kong is partnering with young groups of several other professional bodies including the Hong Kong Dental Association, Hong Kong Institute of Architects, Hong Kong Institute of Planners, and Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors to organise a 3-hour architectural tour (“Guided tour”) led by the professional tour guides of Hong Kong Architecture Centre, a non-profit institution that aims at creating interaction between architecture and the general public.

 

The tour will cover several selected spots of historic and architectural value at mid-low level of Central, including the Former Central Police Station Compound (comprising the former Central Police Station, Central Magistracy and Victoria Prison), the Edwardian-style former Pathological institute (where the current Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences is situated) and the 120-year-old Victorian-style former Dairy Farm storage depot (i.e. the current Fringe Club), and the tour guides will explain their features from the perspective of architecture.  Networking drinks will follow allowing young professionals across different fields to meet and talk.  Details of the event are as below:
