HKAC Archi-Talk & Walk : Art Deco Architecture in Hong Kong: The CFEO and urban development in the 1930s

In this talk, Dr. Prudence Lau will discuss architecture, particularly some in the Art Deco style, developed through the Franco-Belgian land investment and construction firm Credit Foncier d’Extreme-Orient (CFEO) in Hong Kong.  Primarily focusing on their Hong Kong residential work, she will show how they combined East and West traditions and technology to create forms of modern architecture in Hong Kong in the 1930s-50s. Archi-Walk around Prince Edward Road, where the company’s buildings from the 1930s still stand today (including the location of the lecture), will follow after the talk.

HKAC Archi-Talk & Walk : Eclectic Architecture in Hong Kong on the 1930s

HKAC Archi-Talk & Walk : Eclectic Architecture in Hong Kong on the 1930s

Some name them Chinese Renaissance and some say they are Eclectic Architecture. No matter how they are named, their appearance will always catch our attention - a bit of Chinese and a bit of western. They were the products of the time, when the post revolutionary China had been established and western trained Chinese Architects went back to their homelands and put their passion in revitalizing Chinese architecture into practice. Tung Lin Kok Yuen was one of these Chinese-western hybrid built in 1935 under this social context that still exists in Hong Kong. Though talking about the social architectural history and visiting this pre war Buddhist Temple, one can understand more the architectural style of that era.
