Sculptural Canopies for The Work Project
The design concept for The Stage was driven by the poetic interpretations of the history of the waterfront district that is now Causeway Bay, and the dynamic atmosphere of the fishing community who once gathered under boating canopies. These qualities have driven the design for a set of feature, stepped meeting rooms, where people can gather around and under the sculptural canopies for meetings and events.
