ONE: The Self. The Few. The Many
This entry for an open competition to design a pavilion for West Kowloon Cultural District in Hong Kong was done as a collaboration between Bloom Collective and an extended select design team. We call it BLOOM+.
With ONE: The Self, The Few, The Many, we seek to unite the various aspects of Hong Kong in a single habitable space and iconic form.
As a singular continuous gesture, ONE encapsulates the fluid transition of thresholds between personal, social and public space – composing three distinct spatial experiences of The Self, The Few, and The Many.
The proposal, selected by a large panel of designers and officials including Thomas Heatherwick and Sou Fujimoto was shortlisted, narrowly missing out on the winning category .
