The project aims to complete an extended search and survey of Brutalist Architecture cases in Hong Kong, and edited into two books: first book will be in Chinese, focusing on the research discourse and historic content; second book will be in English, in a photographic monograph format.

The research extension will include the remaining cases in the campus of CUHK (a rare Brutalist architectural cluster around the world), demolished, newly discovered and infrastructural cases. Apart from the above, more background stories will be discovered from our built-up contact with architect Peter Pun’s family, Samn Lim’s family, Pun Yin Keung’s family and Ronald Poon, by directly interviews and visit to their archive materials.

The research will further synchronize the data with “SOS Brutalism” global data base by Deutsches Architektur Museum in Frankfurt. This knowledge exchange with renowned international institute and the publication aim to enhance the importance of local architectural history to a global level and academic level.
