(Topography should be the word, not geometry.測繪學,研究測定和推算地面幾何位置、地球形狀及地球重力場,據此測量地球表面自然物體和人工設施的幾何分布,編制各種比例尺地圖的理論和技術的學科。測繪學的研究對象是地球的形態、位置、重力分布等地理空間信息,因而測繪學可認為是地球科學的一個分支學科。近年來,測繪學的研究對象還從地球表面擴大到了地外空間及地球內部構造等領域。 )

Make wise use of Hong Kong's natural geometry--105065 2013年4月23日 (二) 18:39 (UTC)


(23 April 2013) The University of Hong Kong's associate professor of Architecture said in Shue Yan University today that the Hong Kong government should make good use of the beautiful natural scenery in the city development so as to attract tourist from the world.

K. P. Cheung, the professor, described that triangles which satisfy the Menelaus Theorem, a geometric formula, can be drawn when we use straight lines to link Victoria Peak, Lion Rock, Lantau Peak and Lei Yuen Mun on a map, the former three are famous mountains in the city. He further stated that if an additional line is drawn from Lei Yuen Mun to reach the line connecting Lion Rock and Lantau Peak, then the intersection between these lines falls on the tallest building in Hong Kong - International Commerce Centre (ICC).

"Don't you feel that the location of ICC is very surprising?" Cheung said. "The tallest building being built in the middle of two high mountains seems like the mountains are holding hands to embrace their friend (ICC)."

He said that a city would become very beautiful if development plans could be in line with geographical locations. It would be more wonderful if geometric theorems could be taken into account. He added that many cities deployed the same rule in the town planning, say the Parliamentary Triangle area in Canberra, Australia.

Cheung said that Hong Kong might also use the same way in planning the West Kowloon Cultural District, a new art and recreational area under development near ICC. His suggestion includes to turn the promenade of the district into a park instead of constructing buildings so that when the 490m ICC casts a shadow on the 800m long promenade, a triangle with the golden ratio, which equals 1.618 approximately, will be formed, making the area wonderful.

"Undeveloped reclamation areas are valuable because it is difficult to reclaim land in the Harbour by law," said Cheung, adding that if lands in could be well planned then visitors would be able to share Hong Kong's natural beauty with citizens.

Months before there were groups trying to list the Victoria Habour into the World Heritage but the suggestion was rejected by the government. Cheung said that if the adjacent mountains and the geometry ratio were taken into consideration, the whole story would be different.
