The new Legislative Council (LegCo) Complex is the first purpose-built building to house the Legislature of Hong Kong. The Complex comprises the Council Block, the Office Block and adjacent open spaces – the LegCo Square and the LegCo Garden. It is designed with the themes - "Doors Always Open", "Land Always Green", "Sky Will Be Blue" and "People Will Be Connected". Its architecture has a strong emphasis on vertical lines but also features integrative design elements of "square" and "round", symbolizing solemnity and prudence, openness and empathy.
As LegCo considers art to be a significant part of a vibrant and dynamic Hong Kong, the Complex houses a collection of artworks from local and international artists, including "The People" by Cornelia Erdmann, "Clouds and Mountain" by Koo Mei, "Centuries of Hong Kong" by Lam Tung Pang and "Huayuan" by Simon Heijdens.
Our visit will take us to the different halls where issues and policies about Hong Kong are debated and shaped. We shall meet with a tour guide who will introduce us to the various functions of the Council and the special features of this new Complex.
