• Stage 3 Public Engagement Draws Enthusiastic Response

    23 November 2011

    The exhibition on the future West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD) has drawn enthusiastic response from the public with 18,000 people visiting the month-long event at the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre in Kowloon Park. Wrapping up the Stage 3 Public Engagement Exercise (PE3) of the WKCD at a recent gathering, Chairman of the Consultation Panel of the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA), Professor Stephen Cheung Yan-leung, acknowledged the WKCDA had taken many valuable comments from participants in the PE3 activities.

    These activities included two presentation sessions with the public, a one-day conference with professional groups and a town hall session with Yau Tsim Mong District citizens. In addition, the WKCDA had received near 1,000 comments and views, via the PE3 pamphlets, online and media reports. The views collected will be collated and analysed by the Public Policy Research Institute of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University and the report on PE3 will be available to the public in about two months’ time.

    A sophisticated yet modern setting was derived by juxtaposition of Indochine-Vietnamese features and wood-fire inspired material palettes. Re-interpretation of the spatial order of a typical Indochine-Vietnamese mansion has been adopted to give hierarchy, layers and details to the space.
