Description: In a city as densely populated as Hong Kong, breathing space is critical to our social well-being. The Arts Pavilion at the East Cost Park Precinct brings the community of Hong Kong together in an open outdoor park that has benefited the mental health and wellbeing of the residents in these unprecedented times.

The Word Art installation creates an eye-catching landmark signage for Victoria Harbour that invites the visitors to openly interpret and interact with the hollow mesh letters to become a part of the art work, and to increase their sense of belonging.

The Breakwater Pavillion extends this concept while spreading a strong message on sustainability through its use of 30,000 colourful plastic bottle caps to create a wavy immersive experience that encapsulates the waves of this iconic waterfront.
