Tai Kwun Conversations is a series of inspiring talks that brings together brilliant minds to discuss the challenges and rewards in pursuing a sustainable future through active management of heritage resources. Join us at this monthly event to discover outstanding practices in heritage conservation and strike up a conversation with our renowned guest speakers.


Experts from the Central Police Station Revitalisation Project have gone through a decade-long journey to transform the once closed legal premises into a Centre for Heritage and Arts. Bringing in a multitude of expertise, the Project has innovated a number of creative solutions in building and engineering works intended to be unseen and hidden in the historic environment.

At the upcoming Tai Kwun Conversations, representatives from the executive architect and the engineering consultant of Hong Kong’s single largest heritage conservation and revitalisation project so far will unveil the challenges and solutions in revitalising the Central Police Station compound.

*The event will be conducted in Cantonese, with simultaneous interpretation from Cantonese to English available.
