  • It looks like a landfill site.......very disgusting
  • just a lot of NON-reasonable fragments leave there... NO HK style! and UGLY
  • it looks so strange and ugly
  • I really don't like it
  • it does not fit the image of the waterfront...disaster
  • -like a dump; a wasteyard, if you see the whole elevation view very bad project but you vote yourself many times
  • A beautiful desing of tranquility
  • A bit immature. What does this image of falling buildings / collapsed buildings on the harbour mean?
  • a concrete city center is exactly, what we DON'T NEED
  • A touch of nature / oxygen in the concrete jungle. Very refreshing!!
  • After look into design, I can see there are lots of fun to hang around. Refreshing design idea, form the view og HK
  • Awful, excessive building.

  • hi man, your design make me feel there (HK) will become "a concrete city" , you know , where is green and local features? From Mr concern HK
  • i dont understand it!
  • i feel a bit diappointed by the harsh edge between the habor and land you created by your megastructure. the cascading building typology will work in hillside, but not along the rather plain landscape.
  • i know HKand i think that is à very well done project for this city *

  • it's verygood project for H K

  • iteresting work with greenery in mind, but needs more symmetry. Odd angles make it look like an earthquake hit the harborside.
  • Just love it. Lots of creativity.
  • Just love it. Lots of creativity. This is what I want for my Hong Kong.
  • just simply cant understand...is it informality or is it chaos u r trying to bring into HK?this is the prize asset of HK and yet.......
  • looks like mudslide
  • Love how you designed the buildings slanted so people can look down to the harbour and enjoy the view. fururistic look. o [] [] w i z [] [] o
  • low structure doesn't alter the view too much, but it's a bit too long
  • Muy Bueno
  • Nice design but too mush concrete
  • Nice idea, but how about the further?

  • Nothing special

  • perfecto diseno
  • really awful...
  • Sensitive concept betwen urban architecture, forest and sea view
  • Simple concept wide fields and important harbour view
  • Superb concept. Nice transition between built environment and seashore. Congratulations!
  • that's really spoil our harbour by putting such a giantic structure at the edge of waterfront....... how can the ppl enjoy the view?? where is the rest of design? I'm curious where will be this structure located!!
  • the best one
  • The solution is more complicated than the problem!
  • there's no input in master planning and enhancing the use of the harbour at all, it is just a jumble of ships and junks stacking over and over along the waterfront.
  • This is a fabulous design! LOVE the idea of bridging sea and city with a diverse mix of vegetation - reflecting Hong Kong's own diversity!
  • This is a wonderful design, the best i've seen among all the designs of the competition. Complex architecture, and pure lines at the same time!
  • This projet showing different from all others
  • ugly
  • very bad
  • very good
  • very interesting contemporary and modern design, more air for the people
  • very messy waterfront
  • Very nice idea of different landscape or differents atmospheres
  • very nicee desing
  • very ugly indeed
  • Very, very nice desing, point of view and understanding the principals of urban space as a bio-human pscholgy
  • well it's like a bad school project. anyway, hong kong harbor is not a bay. we dont call it a bay
  • well.......what happening to hk waterfront..a bomb drop
  • what i want is a garden
  • what the............. Just like a harbour front just after the earthquake attack!

  • With creativity, but really weird~
