Post-Industrial Landscapes 5.0: Urban Scan explores the surrounding ubiquitous urban realm and its potential for new architectural and narrative grounds. Presented by the Architectural Association Visiting School Hong Kong, this exhibition showcases the 3D scanned works by 28 participants 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. Alongside these digital representations, this exhibition poses artistic insights towards the relationship between an urban space, its artificiality and the resulting cultural production, through the works of Hong Kong artists South Ho, Ko Sin Tung and Trevor Yeung. 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.
