Barren Rock and the City: A Walk to the City Boundary – Lecture

March 1, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


You are invited to a walk to the city boundary.

We always heard that Hong Kong has a hilly terrain and it is hard to build the city on the “Barren Rock”. To what extent the physical terrain really shapes our city? On the other hand, we have made every effort to conquer the difficult terrain, from land levelling, reclamation and these actions greatly. Transformed the landscape. In this seminar and fieldwork, we’ll have a review to the changes in relations to the characteristics of city development in the “City Boundary” zone of Kennedy Town: An area that has been marked once upon a time as the “No go zone” of the city…

Activities include the seminar and a fieldwork to Mount Davis.
