About This Book

Hong Kong's approach to heritage conservation has focused mainly on saving an old building here and there with little or no regard to its surroundings. Recent public debates challenging proposals to demolish the former Central Government Offices have highlighted this problem and, for the first time, acknowledged that the heritage value of the buildings is enhanced by their contribution to the broader 'cultural landscape' of Government Hill. Not all of Hong Kong's heritage cultural landscapes have been so fortunate. This book illustrates the concept of cultural landscape using wonderful local examples and champions this new approach to interpreting and conserving Hong Kong's heritage sites more effectively.
