Post-Industrial Landscapes 5.0: Urban Scan is a virtual reality experience that explores the surrounding ubiquitous urban realm and its potential for new architectural and narrative grounds.
Presented by the Architectural Association Visiting School Hong Kong, CityU School of Creative Media and CityU Centre for Applied Computing and Interactive Media, this exhibition showcases the 3D scanned works by 28 students on the notion of Hong Kong’s cultural landscape re-imagined, re-assembled and re-interpreted. A collaged city is constructed with unique urban components, ranging from Tai Kwun - the newly open heritage-revitalised cultural institution, to the overcrowded cemeteries along the hillsides and the bustling streets of Sham Shui Po. The intricacy of this exhibition is foregrounded by the multitude of urban scenography and the breakthrough of inherent boundaries, signifying Hong Kong in urbanism terms as an exception, not a model - never been able to be adapted by another planned city.
