Hong Kong - Bethanie in LED splendour


Located in Pokfulam, Hong Kong, Béthanie was built by the Missions Étrangères de Paris in 1875 and was used by them as a sanatorium for almost a century.This heritage building was later used by The University of Hong Kong from 1978 to 1997, at which time it was returned to the Government.In 2000, the Architectural Services Department commissioned a feasibility study to investigate the restoration. In March 2003, the Legislative Council approved capital works funds for the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts to restore Béthanie and two neighbouring Dairy Farm cowsheds as its associated campus.Béthanie, houses two performance venues, an exhibition hall, a chapel and a museum dedicated to Béthanie and its founders. This site is a new landmark serving the local community and overseas visitors.In addition to full-time Film/TV academic activities and part-time performing arts courses organised by the Academy, the museum is open to the public and the chapel is used for church services and wedding ceremonies.DAWN, DIVE, DUNE, DAISY-OUT and DAISY-ON are the LED projectors by GRIVEN that have been utilized to obtain the astounding effect that is only partially enjoyable through the pictures included.
