Mirroring Hong Kong’s own remarkable growth, My 36 Years of Model-making illustrates how King Chung was, as his colleagues described him, “probably the best” architectural model-maker in Hong Kong and how he played a quietly dynamic role in Hong Kong’s development. This is not a book showing how models are made, but illustrates the lifetime achievements of a model-maker whose work closely tracks Hong Kong’s own development and changes in livelihood, trade, society, finance, urban planning, housing, transportation and art and culture. Architectural models, prototypes and tooling models for various industries are featured in the book. Major architectural models include: the HSBC Headquarters; Hong Kong International Airport; Shatin Racecourse; Kwai Chung Container Terminal; KCRC/MTRC train stations; Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre; The University of Science and Technology; City University; Open Learning University; International Finance Centre I & II; new Hong Kong Government Headquarters; Kai Tak Cruise Terminal Building.
