Where did it all go wrong?🙈
Once our architectural heritage is gone, it’s gone forever!

We’re renovating that city.

I am working as an architect in PMDL, an Australian architecture firm in Hong Kong. Recently we completed a project in the city.
It is a handsome renovation of an old tenement building on a prominent corner in downtown Hong Kong.
What may be of interest is that the project had three Irish designers/architects working on it – Simon Fallon, myself and Darren Snow.
We recently collaborated with the fantastic YouTube channel Never Too Small and they produced a great short video (above) of the project starring Darren.
The project has been getting great feedback locally, and now, because of the video, is being appreciated by a wider audience. It’s currently on 407,000 views after 2.5 days of being published. We wanted to share a story of some Irish emigres done good!
The wonderful creations of sculptor Ted Lott – stripped back elements of modern architecture constructed using a bandsaw as a scaled sawmill to generate miniature pieces of wood and other proportioned raw materials which he builds into items of found and vintage furniture. These, sez he:
…point to the complex interaction of necessity, artistry, economy, function and beauty present in the original objects, while highlighting the possibilities of transformation and growth that are a requirement for the continuation and evolution of life.
Now for yeh.
