嘉多利山道建築 kadoorie avenue architecture

2014.11.29 | 嘉多利山道 kadoorie avenue

幾個月前聽過李浩然博士一個有關現代(主義)建築的講座,他提到香港一個地方很值得實地觀察 - 嘉多利山道:沿著山路兩旁建築風格建於1930 至1960年代,風格一致,觀感漂亮非常;多年的建築風景保持,更是難得。

終於,星期天,機緣巧合在九龍城沿著亞皆老街走,竟走到嘉多利山的一端。雖然時間不早,沖沖十數分鐘,走了一會,印證李博士所言不虛。日後要再多來多看。

這是六號。

few months ago, i went to a talk on modern architecture in hong kong hosted by dr ho yin lee. dr lee always deliver interesting and fulfilling talk. one point he highlighted, when people talk about modern architecture, white city at tel aviv is a model city. and, he recommended everyone to go and take a look at kadoorie avenue, our white city.

this past sunday, i took a walk starting at kowloon city, along argyle street. not long after i saw first assembly of god church that is sitting at the bottom of kadoorie hill/avenue. even though it was late in the afternoon and i should have made a trip back to hong kong island, i could not resist taking a look. the road led me up, tall trees at both sides. then. this pretty house welcomed me at the beginning of a stretch of true “luxury residences”.

i did not have enough time to make a full tour. i shall return.
