Docomomo Hong Kong
Urban Dialogues: Under Threat - The General Post Office & State Theatre
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 HK´s 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.
