This architectural installation is a showcase of the collective efforts contributed by the academic field, architecture professionals and the social community; it aims to provide a new perspective to imagine the new Central Business District in Kowloon East of Hong Kong. The use of bamboo in this installation not only reflected the unique construction techniques and the sustainable choice of materials in usual practice in Hong Kong but also symbolised the large scale urban renewal project in Kowloon East with a sustainable development as core objective.
An interactive digital visualisation will be incorporated to the installation to show the futuristic urban scenarios based on specific topics and expected growth of Kowloon East.
Extracting from the word “Bamboo”, the installation – “BAM! City” also carries a meaning of Build-A-Model City that hopes to drive a further discussion about the many possible otherness for a future sustainable CBD.
