More Information

The Youth for Christ building is a religious activity centre featuring a skateboard park, gymnasium, dance studio, and rock climbing wall.

Designed by Raymond S.C. Wan in 2011, the plan conforms to the angles of the streets and the CPR tracks. The building’s central axis is expressed on the exterior by a fin wall that can also be used for rock climbing. Curved copper-coloured metal cladding is a defining feature of the building.
