It is proposed to organise a field study to Macau this fall for HKIS members. As we are frequently called upon to conduct professional works in Macau and a good understanding of the place and its historical background would surely benefit members. The field study also aims to reinforce basic understanding for historical building conservation, background for the area, study on both Western and traditional Chinese building; and architectural form and issues relating to modernise heritage buildings.  
Macau is one of the earliest Chinese port cities opened to the outside world as early as the beginning of Qing dynasty in mid 18th century. Similar to Hong Kong it has experienced lengthy foreign influences and inherited a good collection of western architecture and traditional Chinese vernacular buildings. In view of such unique and rich endowment Macau has been awarded a UNESCO world heritage city title confirming international recognition of its rich cultural heritage.
We will explore the old quarters of Macau which forms part of the UNESCO heritage site listing, and including the Mandarin House, St Joseph Seminary, the Street of Happiness and the former clinic of Dr Sun Yat Sen. These places provide a rich contrast against modern structures and one can almost travel back in times to retrace footsteps of our forefathers, observe interior of traditional Chinese dwellings and serene western quarters within a bustling oriental city.
