Bamboo Craft Festival

A Spatial Celebration of Hong Kong’s Cultural Heritage

With the rapid growth of urban development, old shops and street stalls that shape Hong Kong’s cultural diversity will be demolished and eliminated, causing a gradual disappearance of local traditions and cultural heritages.

To revitalize and celebrate these valuable and established practices, an elevated temporary bamboo structure is designed, creating a festival space for citizens. Considering bamboo as a material used for urban interactions, the festival takes place annually and aims to engage people to experience and explore local street cultures and craftsmanship, through workshops and performances manifesting the spirit of Hong Kong traditions.
