Pacific Pace X RIBA HK SHOP!

This week will see the launch of a collaboration between RIBA Hong Kong and the luxury shopping mall, Pacific Place in Hong Kong – entitled SHOP! Over the next three weeks, visitors to the shopping mall can see and interact with the competition-won public installations celebrating Pacific Place’s 25th Anniversary.

Aimed at emerging architects, the project has been orchestrated to promote architecture as a practice within Hong Kong by engaging the public with these new designs. Three of the winning pieces – selected from 40 entries – will be erected for the three weeks in the ground floor of the mall.
