"Handbook of Building Control in Hong Kong" provides expertise knowledge even for those who are not professionals to understand how the design of buildings is legally regulated. There are chapters covering the historical background, the control on development, design and site as well as the statutory administrative procedures. It is the wish of the authors to reveal the legislative control behind buildings for everyone so the restraints of building design will be understood and eventually improved to be adaptable to modern living and the future generations.
