About Exhibition
Architecture does not only construct the physical space that people live in, it also shapes our ways of life and the interaction between people. The government’s recent urban renewal schemes drastically change the outlook of the city. With old buildings demolished and renovated, new blocks built, the cityscape changes, so does the neighbourhood. Because of urban renewal, many inhabitants are forced to move out, old shops have to be closed down; most affected are the older generations, for what they lose are not only homes they have lived their entire lives, but also communities that they acquainted with. They mostly can no longer stay with the communities due to the unaffordable high prices of the new residences.Ramond HO captured the juxtapositions of the new and the old buildings in the process of urban renewal. New high-rise luxurious mansions stand out in the humble old houses, creating a peculiar city outline. Through photography, HO queries the objectives of urban renewal.
關於展覽
建築不僅直接影響人的生活空間,也間接影響著我們的生活模式、習慣及人與人之間的距離。近年政府的市區重建計劃對香港的城市風貌起了重大變化。舊樓清拆、重建和翻新改變了社區面貌,亦無形地改變了社區的脈絡。不少居民被迫搬遷,舊舖被迫結業,受影響的很多是上一代的老年人,他們遷離的不只是老家,而且是一個人情味濃郁的社區。而他們往往因為重建後的摩天「豪宅」價格高昂,不能在原區生活。何展兆拍攝了在舊區重建過程中新舊建築物共存的景象。新落成的「豪宅」高聳入雲,在舊平房中一柱擎天,令城市出現了奇特甚至畸形的景觀。何展兆透過這些影像反問市區重建的原意為何。
