Tsz Shan Monastery

A journey into calm

The ‘Tsz Shan Buddhist Monastery’ is located in the Tai Po district of Hong Kong. The monastery, funded by Hong Kong business magnate Li Ka-shing, is open to both those with an understanding of Buddhism and newcomers to the philosophy. The principles behind the built site are to provide a calm and open space away from the intensity of the city, where visitors can meditate and be educated about the religion. It was key to the project that the publication delivered this idea of acces-sibility and openness.
