Inv Landscape C 1200.jpg

Previewing our ongoing landscape installation at construction stage, ‘Invisible Landscapes’ describes the evolution of Sha Tin’s unique urban landscape through a riverside walk of twelve permanent site-specific architectural interventions. The journey introduces the audience to the town’s historical past through a series of spatial devices which reveal a narrative of selected moments in one of Hong Kong’s first generation of New Town Developments, a model of urban planning created as a solution to cater for a rapidly increasing population. Responding to the surrounding context, the trail celebrates the cultural fabric of the time and connects past and present relationship between the urban and natural landscape, geography infrastructure, cultural and sporting legacy along Shing Mun River.

Organised by the Hong Kong Institute of Architects with support from The Japan Institute of Architects, “MORE THAN HIGH-RISE – Exploring Hong Kong through Architecture” Exhibition showcases a range of architecture projects and concepts to reflect the complexity of our city. By unfolding the dynamics of Hong Kong cityscape, the exhibition invites visitors to explore Hong Kong’s unique urban form that celebrates an aesthetics of density and intensity.

Venue: Ginza Atrium, Ginza Tsutaya Books, 6/F, GINZA SIX, 6-10-1 Ginza, Chuo-ku, Tokyo, Japan
