Kapitan Chung Keng Kwee's Shen Zhi Jia Shu and Hai Ji Zhan

This book sets out to remember Chung Keng Kwee, one of the leaders of the Chinese community in Malaya in the 19th century, through two magnificent buildings he arranged to be built in Penang, the Shen Zhi Shu, an ancestral hall and the Hai Ji Zhan, a family mansion. The author, one of the city's leading conservation architects, in the first part of the book gives brief Biography of Chung, in the second part, explains how the buildings were constructed and finally uses old maps and architectural drawings to try and fathom Chung's motive for designing the buildings in this particular manner. The book is bilingual in Chinese and English. 120 pages.
