Culture represents a conglomeration of aggregated wisdom from the local context, and wisdom comes from distilling the knowledge from our people. Our proposed 「My District My People」 utilizes a collection of five abstract forms of housing developments, each one from our five districts from East Kowloon, coming together to form a coherent whole representing the cradle from which our local people reside.
Spanning across from the 1950s to 2010s, the aggregated form spirals itself vertically towards the sky, looking into the future. The proposed steelbar mesh at once resembles our architecture stripped of its concrete to show its internal strength and at the same time dematerializes the whole sculpture into a gradually changing translucent structure that seems to float rather than to cling with the past. One particular piece, the block that represents the Ngau Tau Kok Lower Estate, extends out to greet our visitors and anchors our site with its former foundation reminding us the people who resided here and contributed to our unique culture of Kowloon East.
我們從生活環境匯聚出的智慧是文化的由來,而智慧源於人們對生活的沉澱。是次設計提案「吾區吾民」利用了香港房屋發展的五個階段集合成一個抽象的形態,匯聚成一個連貫的整體。
透過從五十年代至今五個居住建築體量所形成密不可分的關係,匯聚成東九龍獨特的文化搖籃角色。形體排列成垂直向天盤旋形態,展望將來。網狀的鋼筋結構代表了混凝土內我們的堅毅及韌度。網狀結構將物質虛化,形成逐漸透明的體量,猶如整個雕塑漂浮在半空中而非拘泥於過去。其中代表牛頭角下邨體塊由作品中心向外延伸,主動迎接來自各方到訪者,象徵其為此處基石的重要歷史背景。「吾區吾民」以東九龍為骨幹,以文化為載體。

THE ANCHOR 主體

Ngau Tau Kok Lower Estate block is made proportionate with human scale to suggest more intimate relationship with visitors, and also to anchor the site with its history.

牛頭角下村組件與人體成比例,以表達作品與訪客的關係,並將屋邨歷史紀錄於主題場地。

THE COMPONENTS 組件

The sculpture is composed of five types of representative public housing models, each with a distinct proportion and form, coming together as a coherent whole.

作品由五種代表性的公共房屋所組成,每種房屋具有其不同的比例和形狀,並融合成為一個連貫的整體。

THE EPOCHS 時代

The five components are arranged in a spiral manner, each subsequently higher, pointing to the future.

這些組件根據年份以螺旋狀排列,隨後組件較高,以指示未來。

THE ACCENTUATION 強調

The steel mesh density gradually becomes more transparent to accentuate the heights and horizontality of the different blocks, as well as to allow visual transparency towards the centre at eyelevel.

網狀鋼筋的密度逐漸向內變得疏離,以突出不同組件的高度及寬度,並在視線水平能看到作品中央的透明度。
