The Hong Kong Island Coastal Trail: Community, Ecology, and Performative Landscape Visions
March 31 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Debra Tan will be speaking on a panel discussion at the “The Hong Kong Island Coastal Trail: Community, Ecology, and Performative Landscape Visions”
This exhibition responds to momentum within the city to realize a recreational circulation network around Hong Kong Island – The Hong Kong Coastal Trail—with a showcase of three years of work by master’s students in the Division of Landscape Architecture’s first year core design studio. The proposed pedestrian trail became a catalyst to imagine a more connected, more accessible, more equitable, more ecological, and healthier city. The studio focused on the relatively overlooked areas along the island’s less-developed southern and eastern coastlines, engaging in a diverse range of urban and natural landscapes. These coastal edge landscapes, densely layered with their own unique histories and human experiences, are here reconfigured around pedestrian-oriented, nature-centered, climate-adaptive planning and design initiatives. The exhibited works explore new ways to see, draw, access and model the landscapes of Hong Kong and propose a radical variety of imagined conditions around the city’s edge.
