Experience a creative Wanchai

#DesignDistrictHongKong (#ddHK) | #ddnewface

Life doesn’t need to be mundane. Have you ever thought of injecting new ideas to your neighbourhood? #ddHK #ddwanchai makes it possible for you. It consists of 4 parts, “Public Space Installation”, “District Identity”, “Creative Tour” and “Creative Event”, in which we have prepared furniture installations, paving design works, special-curated tours and a 24-hour cross-disciplinary programme. You are going to experience the day and night of Wan Chai through physical installations and a series of human-centred creative events where you can feel the change of the neighbourhood and, hence discover its different faces.

#DesignDistrictHongKong (#ddHK) | #ddplacemaking

Design District Hong Kong 設計香港地 - #ddhk is officially pre-launched today! The theme of this year is “Connected City: Hong Kong Stories”. You are going to find a different experience travelling around Wan Chai with the playful design elements we have prepared. As the Creative Partner of the placemaking Wan Chai series, we have collaborated with over 15 designers and community partners to insert creative design ideas into the big and small public spaces in the neighbourhood. We hope to bring an innovative perspective in seeing the potential of our public spaces and facilitate a unique district identity for Wan Chai.

Our team believes in public participation as the core in city placemaking. Therefore, we sincerely invite you to join us in the series of events in December and be part of the place-in-the-making!

discover stories of Wanchai

The happenings or people can be the reason why one falls in love with a neighbourhood. Together with i-Discover App&Map, we are going to organise another set of guided tours in Wanchai for everyone to learn the cultural and historical stories behind local design and crafts. In the course of exploring the diversified and interesting Wanchai by touring around various attractions and meeting with kaifongs, you will likely fall in love with this unique and story-rich neighbourhood.
