RTHK programme description (English):
 
In recent years, is Hong Kong's architectural design dull? is it not in harmony for people?
 
What are the biggest obstacle to the development of architectural design in Hong Kong?
 
Can the general public influence the future of Hong Kong architecture by enhancing the appreciation of the buildings?
 
"Hong Kong has you" invited senior architect Raymond Fung, Wing Kee and cutting-edge architect James Law, Fat Lai to start cross-generation dialogue, about their architectural ideas, and to talk about the future development of Hong Kong young architects and their prospects.
 
From Hong Kong Tin Shui Wai to Mumbai, India, and then to the Middle East of Dubai, we take a look at their architectural works to understand how the building and nature become integrated, how the future of the building is with innovative technology, so that our living space can continue to embrace the bright sunshine, fresh air and clean water sustainably.
 
In the face of a conservative bureaucracy, the lack of creative demand for developers, and the constraints of the international construction market, the two architects shares their experiences on how they have tried step by step to achieve their own architectural dream.

近年,香港的建築設計沉悶嗎?非人性化嗎?

「地少人多」真的就是香港建築設計發展的最大障礙嗎?

普羅大眾又如何透過提升對建築的欣賞能力,改變香港建築的未來路向呢?

《香港有你》請來資深建築師馮永基(Raymond)與新銳建築師羅發禮(James)展開跨世代對話,從各自的建築理念談到香港未來年輕建築師的發展前景。

從香港天水圍飛到印度孟買、再到中東的杜拜,細看他們的建築作品,以了解建築物如何與大自然融為一體、未來的建築物如何與創新科技結合,讓我們的生活空間,能繼續擁抱燦爛的陽光、清新的空氣及潔淨的水源,甚至破解「地少人多」的困局。

面對保守的官僚制度、缺乏創意要求的發展商,以及粒粒皆星的國際建築市場,兩位建築師如何一步一艱辛地達成自己的建築夢想呢?
