Alumnus Arnold WONG Yok Fai (BAAS 2011, MArch 2014) and his team have won in the Victoria Harbour Word Art Competition for their entry ‘The Beacon of Hong Kong’.
With a hollow letters design, ‘The Beacon of Hong Kong’ creates an interactive effect and enables visitors to become part of the art. A mesh design is also incorporated to reinterpret the traditional Chinese window frame and ‘screen’ craftsmanship in a contemporary way.
Organised by the Development Bureau and the Harbourfront Commission, the Competition called for a photogenic Victoria Harbour word art design to be developed into a new landmark on the Hong Kong Island.
‘The Beacon of Hong Kong’ is currently installed at the East Coast Park Precinct at Fortress Hill’s harbourfront. For more information, please visit: https://www.devb.gov.hk/en/issues_in_focus/victoria_harbour_word_art_competition/word_art/index.html
