 Event Overview

When people talk about architectural heritage, they often ask, “What is the style of this building?” Such an attention to style has its basis in Classical architecture, which was revived during the Renaissance and developed into different aesthetic expressions (“styles”) based on the principles established in ancient Greek and Roman times. However, with the emergence of Modernism in the 20th century, architecture became an internationally standardized design based on the principle of “form follows function,” and refrained from being labelled by styles. Given this, how do we understand the architectural heritage of the 20th century? The speaker, who is trained in architecture and became an academic specialising in architectural heritage, will answer this question in his lecture.      


 

 

About the speaker:

Dr LEE Ho Yin is a co-founder and the longest serving Director (2006-2015) of the Architectural Conservation Programmes – the first postgraduate academic unit in China dedicated to the discipline of architectural conservation. In 2015, the unit was elevated to a Division, and he became the founding Head of the Division. Before joining HKU in 2000, he was a practising architect, having been involved in projects in Hong Kong, Indonesia, Mainland China and Singapore, and rose to the position of Associate Director of an architectural practice in Hong Kong. A well-published academic and an experienced practitioner in built-heritage conservation, he has been appointed by government agencies in Hong Kong, Mainland China and overseas as an advisor or a consultant for conservation projects.

 

He is a former member of the Hong Kong Government’s Antiquities Advisory Board, Founding Vice-President of The Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists, Associate Member of The Hong Kong Institute of Architects, and Honorary Affiliate Member of the American Institute of Architects (Hong Kong Chapter). He currently chairs the Heritage Working Group for Tai Kwun, the Revitalisation of Central Police Station Compound Project, and has recently been appointed a member of Tai Kwun’s Advisory Committee that will help oversee the venue’s operation and management, and a Co-opted Member of the Urban Renewal Authority’s Planning, Development and Conservation Committee.
