Public exhibition at the City Gallery, Hong Kong, from March 24 to May 16, 2018
Infrastructure Imagination showcases major infrastructure projects completed in Hong Kong between 1972 to 1988. Photographs featured in the exhibition are the work of Heather Coulson, a leading construction photographer who was commissioned to undertake many prestigious infrastructure projects in the period, including the Cross Harbour Tunnel, Mass Transit Railway, Castle Peak Power Station, Plover Cove Water Works, and other important public projects. The exhibition offers an excellent opportunity to reflect on what has been known as the golden age of construction in Hong Kong and to envision ways for building a sustainable future in the 21st century.
