Hong Kong Modern: Architecture of the 1950s-1970s - THE GAME This easy-to-play card game is based on the publication Hong Kong Modern Architecture of the 1950s-1970s by Walter Koditek and features the architecture of 33 selected buildings of that transformative period. In the post-war decades, Hong Kong architects, many of them having migrated from China or studied overseas, embraced the principles of the Modern Movement when forced to face the problems of housing shortage, mass construction and limited budgets in the British colony. Although economic efficiencies often prevailed over design, their buildings were rooted in their time and place, reflecting the local climate, social values, materials, technique and use in an often unique and pragmatic fashion. The box contains 64 full-color cards and one poster with a b/w image of each of the buildings and their location, architects, year of completion and background. The game starts with all the cards laid out face down into rows and columns. Players take turns to flip over two cards, one card at a time. If the two cards have the same picture, they keep the cards, otherwise they turn the cards face down again. Players continue until they are unable to find a matching pair, with the game then moving on to the next player. Once all cards have been matched, the player with the most pairs wins the game. © 2022 by Walter Koditek Apsara Books, Hong Kong DESIGNTRUST 信言設計大使 AN INITIATIVE OF THE HONG KONG AMBASSADORS OF DESIGN
