[Seminar on Green Deck Project] From Grey to Green: PolyU Spearheads for a Better Environment Around Campus

2019-01-04 15:32 | Event

Date: 22 January 2019 (Tue), 12:30pm - 2:00pm
Venue: Digital Visualisation Room, i-Space, 4/F, Pao Yue-kong Library
Speaker: Mr Alex Lui Chun-wan (Project Director of Green Deck) 

About the Green Deck Project
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 proposed the construction of a Green Deck over the Cross Harbor Tunnel plaza to tackle these problems. Linking MTR Hung Hom Station podium, PolyU campus and nearby neighborhoods, the proposed 43,000 sqm. deck area can accommodate a wide variety of recreational, cultural and sports facilities while solving existing problems in the district. This proposal will not only provide people with a green open space to unwind from the hustle and bustle of city life, but also help foster sustainable development through a number of research projects undertaken by PolyU experts.

In the seminar,
Mr Alex Lui will present the design concepts and the latest developments of the Green Deck project, followed by an open discussion to solicit your views.

Register here to join the seminar.
