A few early Hong Kong public buildings followed the Bauhaus style. I visited the food market on Bridges Street today and had a closer look at the details of the building. The outside of the market has a very plain look; the design is based on a pragmatic and economical approach, however, the functional features such as lighting and ventilation are not sacrificed. The windows are designed with the canopy-like feature to prevent rain from outside. A very clever approach without the use of glass panes.
