Built in 1901, rosary church lies peacefully and quietly on chatham road in tsim sha tsui. upon its cross-shaped floorplan, based on the roman basilica model, rises a gothic styled church with characteristic pointed arches, buttresses and pinnacles. behind the main altar, you’ll find the statue of our lady of pompeii, also known as queen of the rosary, holding the infant jesus in her right hand and rosary beads in her left. one more significant feature is the 20 round icons on its triumphal arch. do you know what they represent?

Do you have any idea which roman catholic church in hong kong is the largest? the cathedral of the immaculate conception might look a tad dwarfed among the surrounding high-rise buildings in central, yet it’s a giant in the arena of hong kong-based churches. now listed as a grade i historic building, this prestigious status was gained on account of the surviving gothic detailing — the rib-arch ceiling vaults, flying buttresses and stained-glass windows. this sacred building houses the relics of many saints, the most recent of whom was only transferred in 2011. can you guess which saint this was?

St. andrew’s church is more than a church; it’s a divine place beyond bricks and mortar. particularly after wwii, it was heavily involved in refugee work, living up to its religious motto to serve the poor. built between 1904 and 1906, its red-brick structure with granite detailing distinguishes itself from the modern architecture that runs the full length of tsim sha tsui. a statement to its victorian gothic revival style, the vaulted nave, ribbed ceiling and polychrome stained-glass windows all mark its daring construction. when you look at the structure of the bell tower, it looks like something’s missing. can you guess what?

Have you seen the oldest surviving western christian ecclesiastical building in hong kong? st. john’s cathedral was built in 1849, and stands in central with its low, unadorned elevation. dating back to the period of british rule, its architectural style is a monument to colonial times. its cross-shaped structure built up in grey brick and stone, ribbed course lines and geometrical bar window tracery all display the styles of the early english and decorated gothic revival. but if you look closely you might just see some architectural evidence for a former function of this anglican cathedral. can you tell what it is?

For students of architecture, there’s probably nothing more attractive than studying at university of virginia — the first collegiate world heritage site in the world! walking through the academical village, designed by the third president of the us, thomas jefferson, you will encounter its signature landmark: the red-bricked rotunda modeled on the pantheon in rome. after a restoration project completed in 2016, its white dome and dome room have been restored to jefferson’s original designs.

Built in 1755, the panthéon in paris holds an authoritative position as an early example of neoclassical architecture with its façade modelled on the pantheon in rome. incorporating classical influences from ancient greece, its overall design demonstrates an equal-armed greek cross with a huge dome supported by massive columns and walls at its center. inside, numerous oil paintings and sculptures elevate the building to another level of magnificence. putting its appearance aside, why not take a guess at its current function?

In berlin, the brandenburger gate is one of the oldest witnesses to german history. built in between 1788 and 1791, it embraces many the roman and greek features, as seen in its faithful imitation of the propylaea. you’ll be captivated by how victoria, the roman goddess of victory, strikes her heroic posture atop the gate. apart from her, can you name any of the other gods immortalized on this monument? comment below if you can spot any of them!

Columns, porticos, a dome and flanking wings … all these greek and roman features can be found in the neoclassical architecture of the united states capitol building, built in 1793 in washington dc. its dome is based on the design of the patheon, and atop it stands a six-meter-tall “statue of freedom” making it the city’s tallest building. its historic architectural grandeur is home to america’s modern thriving democracy and us a must-visit for visitors traveling around the usa!

Built in 1917, the grand edifice of the former french mission building graces the modern central district as an official monument, a status received in 1989. of all its neoclassical architectural features, the red bricks and granite make it stand out among other buildings of the period. despite several alterations and renovations in the period after wwii, the grand ornate columns, wooden staircase, and vaulted ceiling have been preserved as a testament to its historic significance.

Before its renovation, the fringe club was the depot for dairy farm. built in 1892, the structure is now an open platform for contemporary arts. distinguished by its neoclassical style, its “blood and bandages” brickwork is what makes it so iconic, eclectically uniting vintage, victorian elements with the modern backdrop of today’s concrete jungle.

Sham shui po police station was built in 1925 and adopted the classical order of architectural composition: its floor plan is structured in the form of the letter ‘e’ with doric order columns lining the verandas of second and third floors. there can be no praise too great for its famed architect! do you know who he is?

The hong kong court of final appeal building was built in 1912. its neoclassical architecture incorporates east asian elements. imitating classical roman and greek architecture, it is supported by ionic and doric columns forming a stoa. yet, it is not entirely western in design, taking on chinese-style pitched roofs for weather proofing purposes. now, why not take a guess on what the scale and sword held by the blindfolded goddess, themis, represents?
