In Hong Kong sits a Roman-style reservoir which, according to records, dates back to the 1900s.
The reservoir was recently-discovered with its towering pillars and brick arches at the top of a hill in Kowloon of Shek Kip Mei. It was put in the limelight for the first time when officials unaware of the site’s cultural importance slated the reservoir for stripping.
With the Hong Kong public requesting the architectural structure to be protected as a heritage site, the government stated that the structure’s destruction would be stopped for experts to conduct a full detailed study.
Orient Occident Atelier, a research and design studio, has created a set of pictures and videos re-creating the old structure during its heyday in 3D and virtual reality.
