Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Article source: West 8

On the Xi’an International Horticultural Exhibition the West 8 designed Garden of 10,000 Bridges has opened to the public. As both a distinct sense of enclosure and vantage points are provided, the Garden plays with the sensation of surprise. In the design advantage is taken of the strategic, central position of the plot, and views to other parts of the exhibition are integrated with those to the features of the park and surrounding landscape.

Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities in Hong Kong, China by HMC Architects

Wednesday, May 25th, 2011

Article source: HMC Architect

The idea to construct the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities as “a new Landmark to reflect Hong Kong as a vibrant global and metropolitan city” is an inspiring endeavor.  However some of the key elements in the design turn out to be a fixed precondition: the shape of the landmass and more importantly the infrastructure itself are not part of the design task… a missed opportunity!

Pre-invited competition_project proposal 2010

POSITIONING IN THE SPACE

The beautiful historical site represents a chance for subtle unique rearrangement with its own identity. We propose to arrange entrance and exhibition hall under the main square, which is surrounded by three charming, historical buildings. The new space intervention is seen only by four gentle skylights, which give a new meaning to the existing square, they let the existing architecture to still be seen, as well as they alert that there is something else going on underground.
