The 2015 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism\Architecture Hong Kong (UABBHK) was launched in December 2015 under the theme VISIONS 2050 – Lifestyle and the City. Open to the public for three months at Kowloon Park and the Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Centre, UABBHK showcased over 60 exhibits contributed by various exhibitors and attracted more than 150,000 visitors to explore and discover, learn and share.
At the closing party for the event, president of The Hong Kong Institute of Architects, co-organiser of the UABBHK, Mr. Vincent Ng said, "The Hong Kong edition of the Bi-City Biennale is one of the most monumental international arts and cultural events hosted in Hong Kong. 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. Recognising that it is the younger generation of Hong Kong who will be the decision-makers of tomorrow, the Biennale Foundation appreciates the efforts of our curatorial team who led this exciting exchange of ideas.”
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."
