The legend behind Hong Kong’s unique structures as told by an Agora #Architecture2020 Finalist.
Agora’s mission is to potentiate the best point of views from all around the world. To do this, it is important for Humanity to share both the photo and the story behind the making of it.
Today let your jaw be dropped by the fascinating story behind Blair Sugarman’s Top 50 shot from #Architecture2020.
Title: Light Through the Dragon’s Gate
Location: Hong Kong
Camera equipment: DJI Mavic 2 Pro
“These quirky cut-outs have long been rumoured to exist for purposes of Feng Shui, an ancient Chinese system of summoning happiness and fortune through an individual’s surroundings. Such holes, it is said, act as gateways for “spirit dragons” that reside in the hills behind the towers – blocking the dragons’ path to the water could bring misfortune to local residents.
At this time of day, the light was perfect as the sun was just setting. The key emotion I was looking to evoke is curiosity and wonder at the uniqueness of Hong Kong building structures.”
