Exhibition Pavilions of Tsun Yip Street Park is an important urban node for public spaces illustrating industrial history of East Kowloon, bring together the urban activities of residents and working communities with the cultural heritage of city. Working with existing urban fabrics and landscapes, the project not only link four pavilions with the pedestrian flow of the park, it also intends to kick-off the shaping of new types of small scaled urban spaces for the regeneration of East Kowloon Industrial District.

By converting four industrial containers into exhibition pavilions, the project demonstrates the design of adaptive reuse for public spaces in Hong Kong. In response to the sequence of four exhibition programs: introduction/ retrospection/ envisioning/ prospecting, four spatial experiences of passing through/ meandering around/ looking up/ gazing into are introduced to illustrate the spirit of creation in the Industrial Heritage of Kowloon East. Through four different modes of opening the container’s enclosure: pushing/sliding/ rotating/lifting, the design investigates different methods of operating display panels for enhancing the interaction be- tween exhibition and audience, as well as exploring different types of transitional spaces between indoor and outdoor environments. The pavilion is designed for accommodating exhibition and lei- sure, community and culture, as well as public art and urban daily-life.
