Envisioning our city's future puts focus on the urban development of Hong Kong, we are delighted that the public contributed so eagerly in the discussions.

Chief Curator, Professor Christine Hawley said, "We hoped to focus on the future of Hong Kong and intrinsic relationship between how we conduct our daily life and the physical environment around us. Hong Kong is a unique city where we strive to create opportunities for the younger generation to think seriously about the challenges ahead. After three months, with the amount of talent brought together, we are extremely pleased with the outcome and hope to continue looking forward to the sheer breadth of imagination and vision that contributes to our experience of everyday life."
