Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Port Passenger Clearance Building recognised at Architizer A+ Awards 2019

Designed by Chairman and Global Design Principal Keith Griffiths, Global Design Principal Max Connop and Richard Paul, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP), Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Port Passenger Clearance Building has been selected as a Special Mention in the 2019 Architizer A+Awards for the Transportation - Transportation Infrastructure category.

Passenger Clearance Building (PCB) of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge Hong Kong Port was jointly designed by Aedas and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners. It houses the customs and immigration facilities for travellers leaving and entering Hong Kong via the bridge. The bridge links Zhuhai and Macau to Hong Kong and provides a strategic southern connection between the 11 cities of the Greater Bay Area Megapolis by linking the West and East Pearl River Delta in China.

The PCB is constantly filled with movement – people arriving and leaving by buses, cars and taxis, and travellers waiting to get immigration clearance. Careful thought has been put in to how users will move around the site. The simple, clear circulation through the facility and the undulating flow of surrounding waters is reinforced by the waveform roof, enhancing legibility and providing intuitive wayfinding. The elegant modular roof form ideally lends itself to offsite pre-fabrication and has enabled an efficient construction process achieving a very high level of quality. The project is environmentally friendly and meets the highest standards for new developments utilising innovative green technologies.

The Architizer A+ Awards promote and celebrate the year’s best architecture and products, with a mission to nurture the appreciation of meaningful architecture in the world and champion its potential for a positive impact on everyday life. This year’s shortlist was presented online for design enthusiasts from around the globe to vote for their favourites.
