The thesis speculates transforming the grey zone of the San Tin/ Sam Po Shue region into a perennial ecological park. The park will be demarcated by a productive perimeter that reacts and mitigates against the geo-political pressures adjacent to the site in order to raise awareness of the region, compromise for its ecological preservation and the prevention of potential developmental encroachment. Edge is physically defined by utilizing existing streams of water on site as ‘barricades’ around the site. Moments of architectural intervention are designed as access points and water mechanisms along the streams to dictate the flow of water along the perimeter. Architectural moments are minimal and work in simpatico with the water mechanism that are scattered along the perimeter of water around the site.
