Detour Art and Design Festival

The former Police Headquarters in Wan Chai off Gloucester Road, the main venue of Detour 2012.

The just past Detour, Hong Kong’s annual art and design festival, moved from its usual main venue, the Police Married Quarters in Central (demoted to a secondary site), to its most recent location, the former Police Headquarters in Wan Chai, a smaller albeit more structurally sound building than the former. Both are designated heritage sites, built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, respectively, their cultural significance making them an apropo setting for the design fair.
