In the post-war decades, Hong Kong architects, many of them having migrated from China or studied overseas, embraced modern principles when forced to face the problems of housing shortage, mass construction and limited budgets in the British colony. Although economic efficiencies often prevailed over design, their buildings were rooted in their time and place, reflecting the local climate, social values, materials, technique and use in an often unique and pragmatic fashion.
With more than 300 buildings and ensembles documented, HONG KONG MODERN Architecture of the 1950s–1970s gives an unprecedented comprehensive overview on the architecture of that transformative period, and is unique in combining photography, carefully researched background information and academic essays. The book aims to serve as a visual record and create awareness on the modernist buildings of Hong Kong, and to contribute to better understanding and discussion of their architectural merit and social, cultural, and historic values.
