Hong Kong Tomorrow Vision

Hong Kong Tomorrow Vision is a public advocacy project that reflects on and criticises the Hong Kong government’s proposal of building an artificial island in reclaimed waters off the eastern coast of Lantau Island.

Put forward as a solution to the city’s housing shortage, the building of the island would mark an irreversible change to the natural habitat. In order to avoid this, the designer proposes a new urban scheme in which the New Territories and Kowloon Peninsula become the ‘Living City’, Hong Kong Island the ‘Monetary City’ and Lantau Island is preserved as the ‘Oasis of Nature’. A newspaper, pamphlets, postcards and tote bags are produced to carry the message to the public, acting as both a source of information and call to action.
