Soundscape by Steven Ho Chun Wang, Alvin Kung Yick Ho and Edmond Wong Chak Yuen. Stainless steel and terrazzo.
Soundscape is inspired by the xylophone. The dynamic forms of the undulating steel tubes are shaped in tune with part of the national anthem of People’s Republic of China, which people can play the prelude by striking the percussion devices that make up the sculpture as they wander along the path. On the side, facing the lawn, Soundscape also acts as a piece of urban art furniture for visitors to rest on and enjoy the lawn.
Once, Tamar site was the most expensive piece of land in Hong Kong. In the past, it was used to host some large scale events and performances. Nowadays, the Tamar Development Project, a new landmark on the waterfront, has been designed based on four concepts: Doors Always Open, Land Always Green, Sky Will Be Blue and People Will Be Connected.
