HKAC Archi-Talk & Walk: Adaptive Reuse on Historic Building - “Treehouse of Knowledge ; The University of Chicago” 香港建築中心 建築講場及導賞 - 活化歷史建築:「知識樹屋 .芝加哥大學」(9 Mar 2019)
HKAC Archi-Talk & Walk : Adaptive Reuse on Historic Building: “Treehouse of Knowledge ; The University of Chicago Booth”

The Former Victoria Road Detention Centre on Mount Davis (known as “White House”) have been transformed into a new Asian Hub for The University of Chicago’s renowned School of Business, The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex | The University of Chicago Francis and Rose Yuen Campus. The site contains Grade 3 Historic Buildings, which was originally part of Jubilee Battery, later converted to become British Army Royal Engineer’s Officers’ Mess and Quarters, and the Special Branch of the Hong Kong Police Force’s Detention Centre. Revery Architecture (formerly Bing Thom Architects) and Revival Heritage Consultants Ltd are the Project Architect and Heritage Consultant engaged to revitalize the historic site, with the “Treehouse of Knowledge” design concept in which a ribbon-shaped new building floats above the contours of the site and integrates with the heritage buildings, touching down only at points of least intrusion, to create spaces for unique experiences and interaction between people, history and nature.

During the tour, Mr. Gavin Tun, Architects Earle Briggs, Architect Kwan Lam and Conservation Architect May Ho will expand on this and talk about the background and how the revitalization project was completed. Do not miss this if you wish to know more about it.
