Group Description

Hong Kong Historic Buildings 香港歷史建築. Get yours at bighugelabs.com

"What is more sad than for a great city to lose its heritage bit by bit? Historic buildings and monuments, once demolished, are gone forever."

Hong Kong is the most vibrant city in the world. The small area of Hong Kong and extreme population density cause great demand for high-rise residential and commerical buildings. A large number of old buildings were demolished in order to make space for new construction for much larger & taller buildings. Surprisingly a number of graded historical buildings were demolished too. (The fate of HK's heritage buildings is still left to the whims of their owners, the historic building heritage policy is less important in HK as compared to other countries, such as Australia & the UK.) Today only a few old buildings still standing. Taking the 'last stand' before cleared away by developers & new developments.

This group is created to promote a greater awareness of the issues that the older buildings and especially the historic buildings present, but not limited to demolished buildings as well. We encourage members to search, take photographs and share their knowledge of historical buildings. Hopefully it could create our awareness on various well known historical buildings and buildings that are unheard of in Hong Kong.

This group's only restriction is please DO NOT post photos of modern buildings, and photos that are not related to buildings at all. Photos of old buildings, demolished or about to be demolished buildings are ONLY allowed to be posted in this group. Also this group is not designed for members to show off artistic photography. Otherwise they will be deleted without notice. Thank you.

請香港政府尊重歷史建築和區域, 進行任何發展之前應該做廣泛的建築和地區歷史分析調查。

不尊重歷史的城市, 只會帶來人和人之間冷感情及失去心靈的依靠。
感情也取決於Built Environment, 而 Built Enviornment 裡面包含歷史建築及歷史地區(不只是建築本身) 的遺產保護。維持感情是很取決於歷史空間和環境的。
人,事,物 - 必須需要有平衡。

香港變化很快..... 人,事,物 comes and goes.....
香港雖然是一個國際城市,但已經是一個沒有靈魂的城市。請為下一代想想。
