    Knowledge Network Highlight – From the Demolition to Preservation of Hong Kong's Culture Heritage  

Hong Kong people are attaching more importance to the legacy of architecture and other intangible attributes inherited from the past. Although some cultural heritage has already been disappeared or demolished due to the development of the city, they are always in the memory of people in Hong Kong.

If you are also interested to know more about the local culture heritage, please visit the free courseware, From the Demolition to Preservation of Hong Kong’s Culture Heritage.
