Two of Aedas’ Hong Kong projects have been shortlisted for the World Architecture Festival (WAF) Awards 2019, under the Completed Buildings ― Transport category.
One of them is the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, designed in collaboration with Roger Stirk Harbour + Partners (RSHP). The bridge links Zhuhai and Macau to Hong Kong, providing a strategic southern connection between cities of Greater Bay Area Megapolis. This project features innovative Green technologies, offers careful responses to people movement, and boasts an elegant modular waveform roof. The bridge also received a Special Mention in the Architizer A+ Awards 2019 under the Transportation Infrastructure category.
The second project is the Hong Kong West Kowloon Station, a 400,000-square-meters underground train station with a 45-metre high volume. The ample space ensures smooth passenger flow. The interior of the hall is designed almost like a forest, with leaning steel columns supporting a giant floating roof, lifting glass panels to bring in natural daylight.
The WAF Awards is a global award program that celebrates outstanding architecture. The final results will be announced in Amsterdam in December 2019. ― Construction+ Online
