Docomomo Hong Kong
Urban Dialogues: Under Threat - The General Post Office & State Theatre
DATE: 27/9/2016
Over the past decade, Hong Kong citizens have become increasingly concerned with how historical buildings are being assessed for their heritage value, a process that often determines their chances of survival and conservation. In this second event of Docomomo HKs Urban Dialogues series, we will discuss two buildings that are facing threats of redevelopment: The General Post Office and the State Theatre. Both sties, which are considered as representative examples of the Modern Movement, have recently been listed as "Heritage-in-Danger" by Docomomo International (www.docomomo.com/heritage).

The event will include two short talks on the histories and contexts of the two sites followed by a roundtable discussion.

The event is free and open to the public.
