As one of the world's great cities, Hong Kong has many faces. To scholars and journalists, it was long the best place to play "China watcher". To the business and financial community, Hong Kong remains one of the best places in the world to make money. To artists, writers and filmmakers, the city's colourful history and dramatic beauty have provided inspiration and vivid settings for art, books and movies. To tourists, it is a shopper's paradise with great restaurants and magnificent harbour views. - Judy Lu Kestell and Harold Meinheil. A great city does not just appear out of nowhere. Behind and beyond the skyline and the tourist attractions, people from all parts of China and the world have worked together to overcome daunting internal obstacles and external forces. In architecture, Wong & Ouyang has been an important contributor to that immense effort. The publication of this book, Wong & Ouyang - Blueprints for Hong Kong on the occasion of its 50th anniversary is a fitting tribute to the accomplishments of the firm. In the last half century, buildings have become increasingly complex. The range of projects illustrated in this book - from master plans to building complexes to individual buildings - shows the scope of Wong & Ouyang's capabilities. Looking at the procession of projects and how they have changed over the years, it becomes apparent that the long-term stability and continuity of the firm and its ability to draw on expertise from around the world has created a strong core competence and "institutional memory". That has been a key factor in its ability to learn and improve with each succeeding task. The variety and size of the projects parallel the change and growth of Hong Kong to its present status as one of the most advanced cities in the world. Формат издания: 23 см х 30,5 см.
