    The Kwun Tong area in Hong Kong is currently undergoing a kind of development renaissance since the government will be putting in place an MTR connection here, in part to serve the newly opened Kai Tak Cruise Terminal designed by Foster + Partners on a strip of site that was once the Kai Tak Airport, which is parallel to the Kwun Tong Promenade… the site of the 2013 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture (UABB).

    Of course with any development, controversy always follows, and the UABB, a bi-annual event that seeks to question the urbanistic growth between Hong Kong and Shenzhen, was a target for activists who wanted to focus on the Government’s pro-development schemes in the Kwun Tong neighbourhood. Even some of the event organisers and partners were not allowed into the programme’s opening day of which Chief Executive, CY Leung was in attendance.


    VISIT 2013 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture will run until 28 February 2014.
