Photoblog: Asia Society (Hong Kong)
The Asia Society is one of the best spots in Hong Kong to get away from the visual overload of the city, and enjoy walking through beautifully minimal complex, weaving between its natural surrounding landscape and connecting between the historic buildings that made up the former Victoria Barracks.
As mentioned, the site is made up of various buildings, new and old. Amongst the historic buildings are those that used to be magazines or laboratories, and are now transformed into gallery, theatre, function and administration spaces. The newer constructions include a multi-function event hall, an amphitheater, a roof garden and a double-deck bridge to connect them all.
Located in Admiralty, the Asia Society Hong Kong Center is a stone’s throw away from the heart of Hong Kong’s civilisation; and with its beautiful architecture, makes for a great spot to spend a couple hours, to take some minimalistic photos and walk through its well curated gallery.
Speaking of gallery, the Chantal Miller gallery space regularly houses different exhibitions, which have included artists such as Yoshimoto Nara, Robert Indiana, Feng Zikai, Shen Wei and Pan Yu-Lin. They are currently holding an exhibition based on the theme of light, and features the work of local artist Hon Chi-fun and Yukaloo, an installation by artist James Turrell.
