Abstract
Founded in 1903, St. Stephen’s College is a secondary school with a history of more than one century. The school was relocated to Stanley, Hong Kong Island in the 1920s, and since then, it has witnessed the development of Hong Kong in every aspect, from the social improvement to the architectural development. During the Japanese occupation in the Second World War, it was even turned into the internment camp for the Hong Kong citizens by the Japanese. Most of the oldest buildings, which were built in 1930s, are still in use today. Besides, the school also has a number of different types of plants, which are worth to appreciate for plant lovers. Recently, the school office has decided to open the school to the public for their better understanding of the history of the school as well as Hong Kong. This dissertation will focus on two of the most important features of St. Stephen’s College: the natural potential and the architectural potential, for designing several different routes for the visitors with different interests. By analyzing and evaluating the two features, visitors can have a better knowledge about the school as well as enrich their experience while visiting the school.
