真善美 an estate reminds us good values

2013.3.7 | 真善美村 chun seen mei chuen

慚愧地,從來不知道這條村。直至剛剛過去的星期天。

一看到這村的名字,馬上愛上。想當然,這裡的村民一定感覺幸福,活於真善美,三生有幸。

i didn’t know about this public housing estate till few days back.

what a wonderful place to be, where true, kind and beautiful are at. that is the name of this estate 真善美 says.

真善美村位於馬頭圍,只有三棟建築。名字自然是「至真」、「至善」、「至美」。

上世紀六十年代建成。建築擁有當年建築師的人文關懷的考量:空間、採光、通風,而且方正實用得來,不乏美感。

the estate built in 1965 consists of three blocks . each named appropriately, as “the best truth (chi chun lau)”, “the most kind (chi sin lau)” and “the most beautiful (chi mei lau)”.

public housings belong to the common people. the name of this estate suggests there are values and qualities all people share. what a beautiful feeling. just like this nice touch of the façade of the estate.
