Hong Kong practice honoured for work in Asia
Hong Kong-based Morphis, an international landscape practice, has won three design excellence awards at the Hong Kong Institute of Landscape Architects (HKILA) biennial ceremony, chosen from submissions across Asia.
Led by Mark Blackwell CMLI, Morphis has completed projects across Asia, Europe, India and The Middle East.
The winning schemes were:
- Kai Tak City public realm ‘Living Roots’, Hong Kong (with Buro Happold), the concept design for a riverfront green infrastructure scheme promoting healthy and sustainable living;
- Dreamscape Playground, Hong Kong (with LAAB), a concept design for a brightly coloured, undulating urban playscape that incorporates digital tags that work with smart phones as an educational tool;
- masterplan and planning for the 34 km² Qinhuangdao eco-tourism landscape, China (with Perkins + Will), a coastal bay with an existing dune system, where Morphis will introduce wetland islands, leisure spaces and storm-water management systems into the landscape.
