Golden Bubbles in Hong Kong, China by People’s Architecture Office

Designed specifically for the K11, Golden Bubbles reflect and exaggerate the movement of people above, below and around. These large golden inflatables span the atrium, weaving between multiple levels and escalators. The objects act as curved mirrors distorting reality by warping the surroundings into one field of view.

The hue of Golden Bubbles references Hong Kong’s irrefutable strength as a global financial capital. In a related manner, the impossibility of such massive metallic objects floating in space denies comprehension. Only until we look beyond the enticing skin do we discover the hollow space within. The public is invited to peer into these inflated objects and examine the kaleidoscope-like interior filled with fleeting images of our projected desires.
