风水—勾勒出香港的轮廓

How feng shui shaped Hong Kong's skyline

看到那栋中间有个洞的建筑了吗?
Check out that building with a hole in it.
香港处处都有游弋在空中的龙
Here in Hong Kong there are dragons floating everywhere.
但你看不到 因为 你懂的 它们是龙嘛
You can’t really see them, because you know they’re dragons.
它们盘踞在山间
They actually live up in the mountains
潜入水下
and they come down into the water
如果你阻止他们入水的话
and when you block them from entering the water
你的好运也就跟你说拜拜了
you end up really messing up your luck.
因此为了让龙自由翱翔
So they have accommodated this situation
建筑中间就留了一些洞
by putting holes in the buildings
让龙得以通过
so that the dragons can fly through.
这些洞就是所谓的“龙门”
These are called dragon gates and
它是“风水”这一中国古代的观念
they are one of many examples of how Feng Shui, the ancient Chinese practice,
对香港高楼大厦的巨大影响的体现
is affecting the skyline of Hong Kong.
沃克斯
边界
沃克斯—边界香港
风水就是中国古代的一种信仰 迷信
So Feng Shui is this ancient Chinese belief, superstition.
基本理念是
The basic idea is that
万事万物周遭都存在着“正”能量
there is good energy out there floating around,
好运 福运等 谓之“气”
good luck, good fortune called Qi
如果你恰到好处地管理自己身边的环境
and if you arrange your physical environment in an optimal way,
就可以最大限度地改变运数
you can channel that good luck in the best way
你就能够顺心如意
and things will go good for you.
风水通常体现在家具摆放 室内设计等方面
This usually takes the form of like furniture, interior design
但在香港 风水还影响了城市建筑
but here in Hong Kong, it has affected the skyline.
首先来看汇丰银行的这栋楼
Alright, first let’s look at this HSBC building.
汇丰银行成立于
The Hong Kong Shanghai Bank was founded
海盗和鸦片肆虐的年代
back in the days of pirates and opium barons.
你首先会注意到它的形状
First thing you’ll notice is that it’s nicely squared off,
和前方的山和后方的海港呼应
with the mountains in the back and harbor in the front.
是为了让“气”得以流通
This is really good composition for the Qi to flow.
不仅大厅的层高很高
Not only is the lobby elevated
而且电梯还呈这个角度
but it’s also the escalators are at this angle.
看起来怪怪的
It’s kind of a weird looking angle.
这些都是刻意为之的
That’s intentional as well,
实际上为的是在霉运
because it’s actually meant to fend off the bad luck
从楼底的这个洞穿过时将其挡住
as it’s coming through this hole in the bottom of the building.
反之亦然
And then of course the opposite is true;
如果没能妥善规划生活环境
if you don’t arrange your physical environment in an optimal way,
厄运将降临在你身上
then bad luck will befall you.
汇丰银行隔壁是红色中国的共产主义银行
Right next door is the Communist Bank of Red China.
中银大楼的开发商们完全无视了
The developers of this building explicitly
风水大师们的忧虑
ignored the Feng Shui masters who were
即这栋楼太过棱角分明
concerned that the sharp angles
会切断好运
of this design would cut the good Qi and create
并且给周围的建筑带来厄运
bad luck for all of the surroundingbuildings.
认同这一点的人们疑虑加深是因为
The people who thought this had their suspicions reinforced when shortly
大厦完工不久
after the building was complete,
周围就发生了不好的事情
bad stuff started happening around it.
比如说它周围的这家企业
Like to this neighboring building, which
自中银大厦落成起就饱受财务不稳
has been riddled with financial insecurity,
企业失败 破产等问题的困扰
corporate collapse, bankruptcies, since it’s very beginning.
风水大师们就站出来说明
And Feng Shui masters have come out and cited the bad
这里的风水是导致这些事件的主要原因
Feng Shui of the area as a major cause for these events.
当时的港督家就在中银大厦的阴影之下
Governor of Hong Kong at the time, whose house sits in the shadow
他本人在大厦落成刚满一年时就因心脏病发作去世
of this building, died of a fatal heart attack just one year after this building was complete.
因此汇丰银行
So the HSBC building,
将这些看起来颇像大炮的维修起重机
in response, put up these maintenance cranes that actually look
对准了中国银行
like cannons and they’re pointed right at the Bank
以抵挡从那栋造型尖锐的建筑传来的厄运
of China, in order to combat all of this bad luck that’s coming from this sharp building.
当开发商们设计和建造这些大厦时
When developers are designing and putting up these buildings,
他们还聘请了风水顾问
they hire these Feng Shui consultants.
并支付数百万给那些提出
They spend millions of dollars on consultants who
建议并敲定设计方案的风水大师们
will give them advice and approve their design decisions,
以确保建筑的风水良好
to make sure that they’re in keeping with good Feng Shui.
香港迪士尼乐园修建时
Out here in Disneyland Hong Kong, the
风水大师说入口
Feng Shui masters said that the entrance was
不利于守住公园里的好运
in a bad position for keeping good luck in the park.
因此迪士尼将入口调整了12°
So they shifted the entrance by 12
收住从园内
degrees in order to create a blockade
漏出的好运
from the good luck escaping the park and
防止园区繁荣被破坏
ruining the prosperity of this place.
风水源于中国 中国大陆地区
Feng Shui comes from China, mainland China,
但在文化大革命期间 中国破除了
but during the Cultural Revolution China kind of stamped out some of these
有些它们觉得阻碍社会进步的旧习俗
old practices that they believed wereholding the society back.
风水就是其中之一
And Feng Shui fell victim to that,
但是当时香港处于英国政府统治之下
but Hong Kong at that time was ruled by the British.
是英国殖民地
It was a British colony,
受到的影响比较小
so it didn’t fall subject to that Cultural Revolution and
风水便作为一种主流的习俗被保存了下来
Feng Shui was preserved in a verymainstream way.
再看这栋建筑 合和中心
Check out this building, it’s the Hopewell Center.
这栋楼建起来时人们吓坏了
When this thing went up, people freaked out because it
因为它看起来既像蜡烛 又像烟
kind of looked like a candle or like asmoking cigarette.
建筑最顶端是个游泳池
They put a swimming pool on the top,
就是为了消除火气 同时确保该建筑
in order to extinguish the fire and make sure that it didn’t
不会破坏这座城市的风水
mess with the good luck of the city.
政府也很重视风水
The government takes this stuff really
在2011至2016年间 香港政府
seriously too. Between 2011 and
花费110万来处理风水纠纷
2016 they paid out $ 1.1 million dollars in Feng Shui disturbance subsidies.
这些政府资金拨给了抱怨新建筑
This is paid out to people who complain that new
干扰了自家风水的人们
constructions disrupt their Fung Shui and they get compensated by the government.
所以 下次你穿梭在这座城市中
So next time you
欣赏这些美丽的建筑时
are crossing this harbor to look at these beautiful buildings,
要记住风水
just remember that Feng Shui is
对香港城市布局的影响
at is at play in Hong Kong’s skyline.
