Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge border crossing designs unveiled 

Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP) and Aedas have revealed their designs for the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge's Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities (HKBCF), already under construction.

The joint project between the two architecture firms, working with engineering firm AECOM, will provide a new connection between Hong Kong, mainland China and Macau. It will cover 130ha on the new 150ha artificial island built to the north-east of Hong Kong International Airport.

RSHP says that much thought has been put into how users will navigate the facility. Full-height canyons allow natural daylight to penetrate to all levels of the building and ensure there is a visual connection to the linear roof form, which will further reinforce clarity of wayfinding, the firm says.

The structure has a modular, prefabricated wave-form roof that enables an efficient construction process and a high level of quality, it adds.

Announcements were made recently confirming the bridge will be right-hand drive for all traffic going in all directions. Including vehicles coming from Hong Kong. Tolls will be paid in yuan. Construction of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge project is nearing completion, with an expected opening in 2018.
