Tai Kwun

The Story behind the Name

The name "Tai Kwun" (大館) in Chinese means "Big Station", the colloquial name used by police officers and the public alike to refer to the former law enforcement complex. In fact, as early as the 1880s the name Tai Kwun has been recorded in news articles in reference to the former Central Police Station. The name has been adopted by The Jockey Club CPS Limited as a reminder of the historical importance of the compound.

The Design Concept Behind the Logo

With its contemporary, minimalistic style, the Tai Kwun logo expresses the sense of endless possibilities that Tai Kwun offers.

The geometric shape represents the triangular roofs of the historic buildings on the one hand and the rectangular profile of the new structures on the other — conveying the integration of heritage and contemporary art.
