West Kowloon Competition Pavilion Opens

Located in West Kowloon Cultural District waterfront promenade, the West Kowloon Competition Pavilion opens today and will be open to the public for six months.

The Pavilion design captures everyday elements fundamental to Hong Kong, embedding and cultivating them within the fabric of an emerging arts and cultural hub. Located at the waterfront promenade, the Pavilion enjoys stunning harbour and sunset views, echoing the environment as part of the fabric in West Kowloon Cultural District.

New Office Works won the first WKCDA Young Architects & Designers Competition. Architects Paul Tse Yi-pong and Evelyn Ting Huei-chung, worked closely with WKCDA as Design Advisors to bring their pavilion design to life.

“The design process was really an exercise in close observation of things around us, and how to lend significance to various elements that comprise the city – steps, walkways, the way different roofs shed rainwater, palm trees. We’d like to thank the builders at Sun Fook Kong Construction Limited and the West Kowloon project team for all their hard work in realising this pavilion.”

Ms Evelyn Ting, Co-founder, New Office Works.
