Many Thanks to Buro Happold and the Wan Chai Connect Team for their tremendous support on our successful project entry in the Build4Asia awards.
Wan Chai Connect, is often described as an even grander vision than the New York’s Highline. This urban design concept by DCMSTUDIOS is a powerful vision for the future, weaving old Wan Chai and the Hong Kong Harbour front back together. Critical to the urban intervention is the creation of a grand landscaped avenue metaphorically floating as an elevated garden promenade above the traffic and noise of the central highway of Gloucester Road. Interlaced with shaded walkways, lawns, fountains and public art, this sustainable ribbon of parkland appears as if from nowhere to provide the ultimate solution to reconnect the historic Wan Chai district with its previously disconnected counterpart, North Wan Chai.
