Exhibition on Green Deck: A Catalyst for a Green & Vibrant Community 綠化平台展覽: 綠化環境 活化社區

2018-11-26 17:10 | News


Neighbouring the heavily-loaded Cross Harbour Tunnel, PolyU has long witnessed problems in the vicinity – poor air quality, overloaded footbridge, poor connectivity within the district and lack of open space. The University has thus advocated the construction of a "Green Deck" over the toll plaza of the Hung Hom Cross Harbour Tunnel.

Date: 26 November 2018 – 25 January 2019
Venue: P/F, Pao Yue-kong Library

The exhibition will showcase the Green Deck proposal, the related studies conducted by PolyU academic staff as well as stakeholders' feedback collected via a wide variety of programs.

Virtual Reality Display
Date: 27 & 29 November 2018
          18 & 20 December 2018
          15, 17, 22 & 24 January 2019

Time: 12:30 - 13:30
Venue: Digital Visualization Room, i-Space, 4/F, Pao Yue-kong Library

During the time-slots above, a virtual reality display of Green Deck mock-up will be provided to PolyU community. Immerse yourself in a 360-degree tour and experience a vivid walk-through of the proposed construction.

Visit the exhibition and share your views on Green Deck with other fellow students and staff now!
