A complementary and mutual beneficial partnership, Hong Kong and Shenzhen will join the globalization as an integrated image and get benefit. With intimate collaboration, the proposal for the Hong Kong-Shenzhen boundary control point by WAU Design will serve as a symbol of close communication. The scheme concept comes from ‘ink’: many single units can be twisted into a solid and integrated form. This scheme, a twisted link, indicates multi-level and deep cooperation between Hong Kong and Shenzhen on economic, cultural, and multi-faceted levels.

Poland-based Hugon Kowalski, Adam Wiercinski, and Borys Wrzeszcz have designed ‘Sky Street’, a submission for the ac-ca international competition to produce a car park tower situated in the dense urban district of Hong Kong.
The proposal intends to create parking spaces which are an extension of the street. The typical city-street complete with traffic lanes, parking spaces, sidewalks and trams were taken and shaped the building form.
Comprised of two intertwined spirals which seamlessly merge at the top of the structure, the configuration supports collision-free circulation while defining the external appearance with visible contours from the upward outer ramp with a mirrored downward internal ramp. At the midway point, a connection across the center void allows cars to transition and continue driving in the same direction. Continue Reading →

The new Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HKZMB) links up Hong Kong, Zhuhai and Macao in the Pearl River Delta, China. It provides opportunities for significant social and economic development in that region for coming decades.
Being a check-point to entering into Hong Kong from the HKZMB, Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF) will be constructed on a 130-hectares of reclamation site to accommodate the Customs, Immigration and Quarantine facilities of Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. To reflect its importance and aim at constructing the HKBCF as a new landmark, an international design ideas competition was organized to draw new design ideas and to engage general public for the master layout plan of HKBCF and layout design of the Passenger Clearance Building.
The winning designs in the Professional Group of the Competition will be taken as reference for the detailed design of the HKBCF.
