Raise A Corpse From The Dead
Hong Kong is one of the most densely populated places in the world. It?s not rare to see an aged building next to a new building. And some of the buildings are getting aged, but it doesn?t mean those buildings need to be demolished and rebuilt. Because they are bound to the society and the culture already. If we demolish those aged buildings, we?re not physically destroying the building only, we?re also destroying the culture of the city. In this situation, maybe renovation of buildings is a good option. Renew those aged buildings and extending their life just like extending the diary of the culture for our children. Just like the strategy 14 in the 36 Strategies of the Chinese, “ Raise a Corpse from the Dead”, Take an institution, a technology, a method, or even an ideology that has been forgotten or discarded and appropriate it for your own purpose. Revive something from the past by giving it a new purpose or bring to life old ideas, customs, or traditions and reinterpret them to fit your purposes.
