Kai Tak Public Facilities 2013
The Kai Tak Development project is spanning a total planning area of over 320 hectares covering the ex-airport site together with the adjoining hinterland districts. It was one of the world’s busiest international airports and now going through the transformation into a mix of residential, commercial, leisure area, and infrastructural uses, including the cruise terminal.
The Kai Tak Public Facilities is part of the Kai Tak Public Creatives place branding project, in collaboration with Freeman Lau, Kurt Chan and Michel de Boer, the design consultants of the Kai Tak Public Creatives.
The public facilities of Kai Tak is designed based on the theme Current of Vitality inspired by the energy of life, in the form of a tree. The tapered supports echoes the form of a tree. It’s designed to give a calm yet open and welcoming feeling to the public. Parts are designed to be modular, so it could be made in a more effective way.
