P&T Group celebrates 150 years of changing the face of Hong Kong

May 2019

Award-winning international architectural and engineering consultancy P&T Group concludes their 150th anniversary celebrations in Hong Kong with a series of events at City Gallery during April 2019. The events form part of the Hong Kong Response Exhibition: “Vertical Fabric: Density in Landscape”, a continuation of the 16th Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition sponsored by P&T Group.

P&T Group imagines Dreams of a City

Guided by the theme “Dreams of a City”, P&T Group arranged a number of public sessions for Hong Kongers to learn more about how the consultancy firm P&T has shaped the city over its 150-year history. Sessions include public forums, city walking tours and family workshops, showcasing P&T Group’s dedication to giving back to the community.

City walking tours

In partnership with Walk-in Hong Kong, P&T Group hosted guided walking tours to introduce the stories behind signature building designs in Central District. Taking in P&T Group-designed buildings such as Pedder Building, Jardine House, Exchange Square and LANDMARK, this tour led participants to discover the crucial role of P&T Group in the development of one of the world’s most important financial districts.
