Andrew Lee King Fun & Associates Architects Project Archives 李景勳、雷煥庭建築師有限公司項目檔案

1962–2006
Founded in 1952, Andrew Lee King Fun & Associates Architects was one of the first architectural practices established in Hong Kong by Hong Kong–trained architects. The firm is known for projects that creatively address the opportunities presented by building regulations, technical restrictions, and morphological limitations in Hong Kong’s hyper-dense urban context.


This collection consists of four project archives that document the firm’s work during the period of Hong Kong’s rapid urbanisation and densification, from the early 1960s to the late 1980s. The Bell House, on Nathan Road, Kowloon, is an example of a residential super-block designed to address the shortage of urban housing. The Shatin Centre exemplifies new town planning and construction, featuring a megastructure design of a podium and towers that connects with an underground rail station and shopping mall—which became standard features in these kinds of developments. The Pacific Trade Centre in Kwun Tong is an example of a ‘flatted factory’—an industrial-commercial facility—built during Hong Kong’s transition away from a purely manufacturing industry in the 1980s.

Beyond Hong Kong, the firm’s design for the Jing-an Hilton Hotel was one of the first skyscrapers in Shanghai, demonstrating the contribution of Hong Kong architects to urban developments in China during the early reform period.
These drawings were donated to M+ by Andrew Lee King Fun & Associates Architects in 2013 in preparation for the exhibition Building M+: The Museum and Architecture Collection.
M+ selected project archives, along with a model, for acquisition in preparation for the exhibition Building M+: The Museum and Architecture Collection. From this selection, the firm identified drawings that document the most important features of each project. These drawings were then acquired by M+.
