Hong Kong at 15: Redefining the Public Realm
Noting the 15 year milestone of Hong Kong’s transfer of sovereignty, the Center for Architecture in New York opens the exhibition Hong Kong at 15: Redefining the Public Realm on December 10, 2012. Home to over seven million people and one of the world’s major financial centers, Hong Kong has been a nexus of rapid development and change during this time and has been shaped, in part, by New York architects.
The exhibition features three selected architectural projects built in Hong Kong since 1997 and designed by New York architects: the International Finance Center (IFC) by Pelli Clarke Pelli Architects; Hysan Place by Kohn Pedersen Fox; and the Asia Society by Tod Williams Billie Tsien Architects. Commissioned photography illustrating a Hong Kong perspective is included, by noted photographer Chan Yiu Hung (Ah Hung), founder of the Hong Kong Cultural Imaging Workshop. His work situates these buildings in their unique physical and historical contexts, as well as illustrating the evolving Hong Kong skyline.
