The exhibit is a portal into Hong Kong, where the city’s many memories, opinions and visions are visually organised to curate a narrative of redistribution. Hong Kong’s multi-faceted society is an amalgamation of its cultural heritage (tangible and intangible), contemporary practice, and aspirations for the future. The architectural models, inserted in a mirrored space, represent the role of social significance of the past, sustainable practice of the present as well as a reimagined future where the urban fabric emerges from evolution and not demolition. The infinity view multiplies these scenes to deliver an interpretation of the past, present, and future of Hong Kong’s built environment, illustrating redistribution as an activator for action.
