There is a tower in the middle of Hong Kong Park. It is in the shape of a double helix and 108 steps to the top. Once there you can see a fair amount of Mid-Levels and Admiralty. And because there is no elevator, very few people care to climb all the way to the top leaving me alone overlooking the old churches in Old Central District. The view looking west was of St. Joseph’s College (blue roof to the left) and Church (blue roof at center). The college is the oldest Catholic school in Hong Kong and was founded in 1875. I’m not sure when the church itself was built and can’t find any info online. But, this church is painted a beautiful sky blue with large arching windows. From the looks of it I would place it around WWII for the “modern” look and feel as well as the cast cantilevered cement construction. This method of construction was first used by Frank Lloyd Wright in the Falling Water House. Below is a quick sketch of the facade. You can see that the windows are inset in the concrete similar in style to the way Le Corbusier designed the Notre Dame de Haute.
Below St. Joseph’s is the Helena May Institute (top painting,white building in the lower right) was built in 1916 and was temp housing for unaccompanied British women. During WWII it was taken over by the Japanese for troop housing. Afterwards it reverted back to housing British expat women until 1985, when it was open to women of all nationalities.
