Asia Society Hong Kong Center (ASHK) is located at the former Explosives Magazine of the old Victoria Barracks, a site steeped in history, cultural significance, and natural beauty in the heart of Hong Kong’s business district of Admiralty.

The 1.364-hectare site, which houses a group of four former military buildings, was set up by the British Army in the mid-19th century for the production and storage of explosives and ammunition. It was subsequently expanded and taken over by the Royal Navy in the early 20th century, and left abandoned in the 1990s until its revitalisation by ASHK in 2005.

Through the vision of internationally acclaimed architects Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, as well as meticulous conservation, restoration, and adaptive reuse, this heritage site was transformed into a cultural, artistic and intellectual hub in Hong Kong in 2012. ASHK offers a great variety of programmes in the form of lectures, performances, film screenings, exhibitions and heritage tours to the community.
