Competition Scheme for the New Central Harbourfront Site 3.
Hong Kong, Asia’s World City, has a new icon. Rising from the harbourfront at the heart of Central, its sculptural form shimmering in the sunlight and transforming into strands of liquid silver by night, is a 150,000m2 edifice, embraced by 25,850m2 of an enchanted oasis. The architectural narrative of this icon is infused with and informed by Hong Kong’s evolution, both topographically and historically. The resultant architectural form embodies all the elements of the HK spirit – dynamic, resilient, and evolving, looking forward into the future but never forgetting its past.
