As a part of the London Festival of Architecture the Hong Kong Institute of Architects is showcasing various “meta/physical” boundaries in their recent architectural projects and cityscapes via a series of objects, building models, prints and short films.

These projects explore the various boundary conditions of Hong Kong as a city at different scales and intensity. As if you are visiting the city you would experience the richness of ‘boundaries’ in multi-dimensional senses ranging from the stimulation of neon street signs to midnight urban traffic, and from the enclosures by high density building facades to edges of country parks. It all happens within the bounds of a city.

We invite visitors to experience these “meta/physical “ boundaries in ways closely related to Chinese philosophies: the two states of being, physical vs. meta-physical (實、虛 ) and the two states of act, establish vs. diffuse (立、破).
