Green Deck is an innovative plan initiated and proposed by The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) to cover the toll booth area with a deck and revitalize the Hung Hom and the nearby districts. The competition aims to enhance the awareness of the Green Deck proposal among PolyU students and provides an opportunity for them to propose how to make use of the Green Deck at different scenarios.
Prior to the competition, Mr Alex Lui, the Project Director of Green Deck, conducted a seminar on 22 January 2019 for all contestants to learn more about the background and the idea of the proposed Green Deck. Three training sessions were also arranged by Dr Walter Fung, the Teaching Fellow from Department of Computing, in late January for contestants to learn the skills in using FlexSim software and 3D modeling tools.
Fifteen student teams participated in the competition. Among them, five teams, with members from various departments including Department of Building and Real Estate (BRE), Department of Computing (COMP), Department of Electronic and Information Engineering (EIE) and School of Nursing (SN) entered the final round of competition and presented their scenarios to the judging panel on 3 April 2019.
The design scenarios of the three winning teams will be displayed at the exhibition area (P/F) of the Library until 31 May 2019.
Highlight reel of winning entries and photos of the event are available at Library YouTube and Flickr respectively. For more information, please visit the competition website.
