This book celebrates 60 years of the founding of the Faculty of Architecture at HKU. The development of the Faculty has paralleled the vibrant growth of Hong Kong, especially following World War II when it became clear that a new generation of first-rate architects and other building professionals were needed if Hong Kong was to adequately house its burgeoning population and develop into a world-class city. Hong Kong's role as a global city has been fulfilled, and HKU Architecture graduates can take pride in having contributed significantly to the city's dazzling skyline. The history of the Faculty, Building the Dragon City, makes it clear that the basic issues surrounding the education of building professionals have been vigorously debated for the last six decades and this has been reflected in the development of the Faculty.
