The Organising Committee of the Ideas Competition for Bruce Lee’s Residence announced the results for The Ideas Competition for Bruce Lee’s residence, launched on July 20, 2009, aimed to turn the former residence of the late Mr Bruce Lee into an attraction to commemorate Mr Lee’s contribution to martial arts and the film industry.
The competition was open to all in Hong Kong, the Mainland and overseas countries and comprised two categories – the Professional Group and the Open Group. Over 140 entries were received from across the world and local team Cheung Kwai-yin and landscape architect Jimmy Yuen, won in the professional category of the design contest. The design, titled Journey of the Little Dragon, features a vaulting exhibition hall with an undulating ceiling, and a mirrored room named Tower of Death.
An roving exhibition of all the entries is available at Hong Kong City Hall from January 23 to February 4, Hong Kong Cultural Centre from February 9 to 16, and Shatin Town Hall from February 23 to March 6.
Creative proposals are being invited on restoring Bruce Lee’s former residence in Kowloon Tong to turn it into a tourist attraction.
Initiated by the property owner, the Ideas Competition for Bruce Lee’s Residence will select the best ideas to restore the residence to its original appearance and provide an exhibition hall, an audio-visual room, a kung-fu corner, a library and souvenir counter.
“We are grateful to Yu Pang-lin, the owner of the residence, for his generosity in donating the property. Mr Yu has also agreed to be the promoter of the competition and the honorary chairman of the adjudication panel, and will sponsor $100,000 in prizes for the winners,” Mrs Lau said.
“The support and advice given by various professional bodies, and Bruce Lee’s family, friends and supporters are also crucial to the successful launch of the competition.”
Participants can register until August 31 and must submit entries by October 15. Competition results will be announced by year’s-end.
