“Save the Star Ferry and the Clock Tower” Statement | 天星碼頭專題新聞稿 (via SEE)

Together, the pair of Star Ferry Piers in Central and Tsim Sha Tsui represents one of the great modern and organic architectural buildings in Hong Kong, structures that grew naturally in their cityscape environment. The expansive horizontal windows on the second floor of the waiting area frame the skyline on the opposite side of the harbour. Standing in front of this immersive tableau belies the impression that you have already arrived on the other side of the water. The Central Star Ferry Clock Tower in Edinburgh Place is also the last mechanical antique clock in Hong Kong that can be described as “Hong Kong’s version of Big Ben”. The Star Ferry Clock and its Westminster Chimes were manufactured by the same UK company that provided the mechanical signature to the famous London landmark.

  1. 促請天星小輪公司及政府決策部門,暫停清拆碼頭及鐘樓,讓相關部門及社會人士有更多時間進行紀錄及研究,對其文化價值作初步定義,並供大眾討論;
  2. 社會一直忽略天星碼頭及鐘樓在美學、社會、科學等方面價值,期望古物諮詢委員會能公開對它進行討論,並作出中肯評價;
  3. 只貪圖快捷方便的城市,難以產生令人感動的創作。期望正就中區新海旁規劃進行諮詢的規劃署,不論碼頭及鐘樓在現制度下是否獲評定為古蹟,亦正面研究較彈性機制,容許日後設計有可能原地將之保留,融入新發展,讓該區展現歷史痕跡。

    我後知後覺,不到820都意識不到時日無多。這個星期趕製出這個網站。希望大家可以跑到天星碼頭,拍一幅自拍照,再將圖片上傳上來ourstarferry.net。一方面讓我們的聲音更響亮,一方面提醒我們這個集體回憶與我們不能分割的關係。 請大家支持。
