中央裁判司署 central magistracy

2013.11.7 | 亞畢諾道 arbuthnot road

中區警署建築群中中央裁判司署受的注目比較少。印象中過往的開放活動,公眾沒有機會參觀。

central magistracy is sandwiched by central police station and the victoria prison. the three is the landmark heritage compound not important to the district of central but the whole territory. central magistracy seems to be more detached from the people. as far as i knew, it has not opened to public after being graded.

偶然經過亞畢諾道或雲咸街,不覺舉頭對此建築敬禮。好不巍峨。巴特隆神殿般的六支大柱,整體運用大量的花崗石材,威懾地面蒼生。建築面上還有不少典麗的結構、紋理裝飾,希臘古典風格,莊嚴絢麗。位處繁忙中區核心地段的前高等法院,雖然是地標,但從建築美感而言,實在不能比擬。

上月,讀南華早報報導,目前的活化中區警署建築群的工程,出現問題,中區警署內有些原古結構可能受工程損壞。祈禱。

would it be the almighty presence the architecture projects and the function of this historic site that contribute to this distance between the people and the place, i believe they play a part.

the greek classical style of the façade: the grand and beautiful columns, the bold lettering, details in the decorating lines and patterns; and the history, humble me and i reckon many more.

there was a feature on scmp few weeks ago reported that some structures in the heritage compound are fear to be damaged during the revitalization project. i just pray that this golden site can be kept safe and true to its history.
