What’s in a name? well, for the camlux hotel, it turns out the name unlocks a lot of history. the coral-blue industrial building conversion used to be the factory of one of hong kong’s most recognized brands – the iconic camel vacuum flask. the old factory has been transformed into a chic yet nostalgic designer business hotel and is well worth a visit if you’re in kowloon bay!

Swathed in whimsical old-world charm, hawa mahal sits on the edge of the city palace of jaipur, with its dusty-pink straight façade oozing the fairytale grandeur. also known as the “palace of winds”, its five-story exterior resembles a honeycomb in a beehive with its over-900 windows adorned with intricate latticework for ventilation as well as cultural reasons. the domed canopies, fluted pillars, and floral patterns all demonstrate local artistry referencing hindu and islamic architectural styles. constructed out of red and pink sandstone, its color is intent on confirming the epithet “pink city” given to jaipur. looking at the intricacies of the façade, can you guess how one enters this grandiose building?

Lying still on the man-made putrajaya lake, putra mosque is the second oldest mosque in malaysia and the first pink-coloured mosque in the world. built between 1997 and 1999, it exhibits a rich blend of traditional designs and architectural styles. modelled after persian islamic architecture of the safavid period, it also incorporates malaysian, egyptian and european elements, which are manifested in its carvings and stained glass. constructed with rose-tinted granite on the exterior, its interior structure is covered with intricate islamic geometric patterns that are painted in gold and also different shades of pink! judging from its grand exterior, can you tell how many people the mosque can hold? take a guess and leave a comment below!

Built during the french colonial period in the 1880s, tan dinh church is no doubt a pastel-pink gothic church of dreams plonked in the center of ho chi minh city, vietnam. consecrated as the church of the sacred heart of jesus, it surely wins visitors’ heart at first sight with domes topped with fish scale-shaped tiles at both sides of the church, arches adorned with decorative leaves, flowers, and statues of angels, as well as its all-pink fairytale-like exterior. it is indeed a building bearing a hybrid of architectural styles: gothic, roman, and baroque all featured in its design. its world-famous appearance has been rocking the millennial pink trend since its refurbishment in 1957, keeping it vibrant even after nearly 150 years of existence.

Renowned of its eye-catching pink hue, the fortress-like structure of la muralla roja (“the red wall) sits atop the rocky cliffs of calpe, alicante. the blushy-pink shade owes much to pop-cultural consciousness of color use, and its spanish architect ricardo bofill has further baptized pink into a high-impact hue, namely the millennial pink. built in 1973, it is distinct from other buildings due to its color-coding of spaces much inspired by constructivism and employed thoroughly in its architectural expression: the stairs and circulation spaces are painted in jewel-like blues and indigoes while the outer facade is in a lighter shade of pink. the labyrinth-like composition is based on the casbah structures found in north africa and the mediterranean regions as blueprint, yet in its layout, it adds modern twists.

“grow old along with me; the best is yet to be.” this romantic quote by robert browning is not just something of dreams but is made a reality in marriage. rawlinson house, built in the early 20th century, now serves as a marriage registry in hong kong. before its alteration in the 1980s, it was once the private residence of the deputy commander of the british forces. the original design of the two-story former barracks structure is retained, encompassing a range of features including molded braid courses, arched windows, and a decorative balustrade, all of which reveal an edwardian classical revival architectural style. now classified as a grade i historic building, it truly stands for the lasting power of love.

Built as army quarters in the early 1900s, wavell block was one of the buildings making up the old victoria barracks before being converted into the aviary support centre. its pink-painted walls make it architectural eye candy hidden amidst the greenery of hong kong park. its front façade features arch-style windows, molded braid courses, column capitals, cornices, and parapet walls, characteristic of the edwardian classical revival style, harking back to colonial times. after substantial alterations through the years, much of the original style has been compromised greatly. now, as listed grade 1 historic building, it is an educational arena overflowing with learning opportunities for children.

Built between 1910 and 1912, the main building of the university of hong kong has added a swathe of soft pink tint to the main campus for over a century. it is the oldest structure on campus, and in style and stature it represents the academic freedom and values of higher education endowed by the colonial context and historical background of hong kong. supported by granite columns of the ionic order, the three-story building is designed symmetrically around the central axis of the clock tower, which makes it very well-proportioned and classical in style. these edwardian baroque-style decorative features elevate its grand, solemn façade to such an extent that it brings out the architectural gravitas of this monument.

At the intersection of second street and western street lies a pink-colored public bathhouse that encapsulates the collective memory of past generations in hong kong. built after the plague in 1894 for hygiene purposes, it was hoped that the bath house would help to reduce the spread of the epidemic. its old interior design has been preserved but the original squat toilets were converted to showers in 1922. the structure is minimalistic and plain in its design, reflective of the characteristics of utilitarian architecture, which values function over form. the second street bathhouse offers free hot showers from november to april but is the only public bathhouse without toilets and a flushing system.

St. vitus cathedral, situated inside the prague castle complex is undoubtedly one of the greatest masterpieces of gothic architecture. its net-vaults, whose crossing pairs of ribs interweave with one another, create a zig-zag pattern that is a feature of the late gothic period in central europe. aside from the bold vaults, its architectural sculptures are also fine examples of late gothic grandeur, particularly the bell-shaped high gothic columns, undulating clerestory walls, and window tracery. guessing time! can you point out one similarity shared between this cathedral and charles bridge?
