Outline

How can we create a temporary recycling station in our neighbourhood that would have a positive impact on the community? We do not want to build just a rubbish collection point, but to provide a positive asset to the local residential area. At the heart of urban area, we create a green oasis to embody a sense of community and beautifying the context. The site was previously a temporary carpark located underneath a flyover, the Island Eastern Corridor in Sai Wan Ho. We want to inject this left-over space with vibrancy and turn it into a public urban forum.

Evaluation

The project set a highly commendable example to explore the urban "wasteland" of the underside of the highway in the city centre, turning it to be far more than a simply rubbish collection PointIt is indeed a very encouraging to see the objective of the project to provide with the neighbourhood community much appreciated programmes such as exhibition, gathering space and educational programmesOne would be difficult to associate the project with the typical rubbish collection pointThe notion of creating a public "street" encompassing various community programmes in anotherwise "urban left-over" is quite successful in giving injecting the much needed social spaces for the local residentsOne would wish the project could remain as a permanent facility
