Photo Exhibition of New Declared Monuments in Hong Kong 2018
Hong Kong has many monuments which need proper conservation. In accordance with the Antiquities and Monuments Ordinance (Chapter 53), the Antiquities Authority may, after consultation with the Antiquities Advisory Board and with the approval of the Chief Executive, by notice in the Gazette, declare a place, building, site or structure as a monument. The Antiquities Authority is then empowered to prevent alterations, or to impose conditions upon any proposed alterations as she/he thinks fit, in order to protect the monument. In November 2018, three more items were declared as monuments. There are now a total of 120 declared monuments in Hong Kong. This photo exhibition introduces the three newly declared monuments of The University of Hong Kong, including the Exteriors of Fung Ping Shan Building, Eliot Hall and May Hall, in order to enhance public understanding of these newly declared monuments.
