2050: the year where technology makes up the fabric of society, from the way we communicate and socialise, to shop, eat and live. Cities will be more sustainable and urban development more innovative. Lighting in the future is something we can touch and feel, and the way we experience digital information becomes an ‘art’. The interplay of architecture, interiors, lighting and a media-rich landscape influences the way we live and play.
In the Hong Kong Edition of the 2015 Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism Architecture (the Biennale), Lead8, in collaboration with leading lighting design company LPA and interdisciplinary creative group teamLab, created a short film titled “Futurescape” presenting a vision of the future Hong Kong. The collaboration imagines how the physical fabric of the city can adapt and communicate with us on a personal level, and how urban lighting can play an integral part in creating atmosphere and communication, creating a positive and reactive environment.
Futurescape explores how cities could be more sustainable and urban development more innovative. Exploring ideas of the interplay between light, people, architecture and cities, the short film illustrates experimental vignettes that start to illustrate how we might experience our city in 2050.
Co-organised by the cities of Shenzhen and Hong Kong, the Bi-city Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture is a curated showcase of inspirational works by leading international and local creatives and design professionals. The exhibition is currently open to public until 28 February 2016 at the Kowloon Park & Hong Kong Heritage Discovery Center. Lead8 are also working closely with the curatorial team on the exhibition brand, identity and on-going collateral.
