Arnold Wong (BAAS 2011, MArch 2014) won Victoria Harbour Word Art Competition

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
