Hexagonal Adventure - Design Competition
Hexagonal Adventure - Design Competition for a Viewing Platform on a Headland Overlooking
Our design proposal for the intervention at East Dam hiking trail is one that both enhances and enriches the human experience of the trail and how people flow through the spaces, along with facilitating ease of construction from a contractor’s perspective. With this twofold design intent, we propose a deployable-structure module that transforms into a pavilion. The design philosophy revolves around the way those we, as humans, experience a mountainous landscape such as the one presented here. Our proposal forges juxtaposition between the natural context and our man made intervention, seeking not to mark a contrast between the two, but rather to unearth a connection and discourse between the two.
With our twofold design intention, and the ways in which we make these intents not only feasible, but efficient and innovative, our design is one that we believe would enrich the experience and intensify the appeal for the existing East Dam hike in Sai Kung.
