Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facility Wins AIA Design Award

As a designer on the project, I am extremely proud to announce that the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facility that I featured earlier this year took the Citation for Design award in the unbuilt category at the AIA Pasadena Foothill 2010 Design Awards. As part of the Ideas Competition, the team created an iconic boundary crossing facility, the gateway for a 20-mile bridge linking three regions in the Pearl River Delta: Hong Kong, Zhuhai, and Macao. The project parameters were limited to a man-made island of 1.3 million square meters in the Pearl River Delta, northeast of the Hong Kong International Airport.

✱ Hong Kong Design Ideas Competition

Since this is a site for architectural designers, I thought I'd post an article about a recent competition entry I was a part of. I'm also taking this opportunity to show off a project I'm really proud of and get some images into a gallery for the site. I'd love to hear what you think in the comments!

A project I worked on earlier this year has been featured on Architizer, a social networking tool for people in the architecture field. I am also doing a write-up for Method on this project, but if you want a taste of it now, visit the Architizer page for HMC's entry in the Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facility design ideas competition.
