Tony Ip Green Architects - Sense of Green

Sense of Green Banner

Situated on the southern bank of Victoria Harbour in the heart of Harcourt Garden, Sense of Green is a multi-purpose sculpture that is inspired by and dedicated to the movement of air.

Externally, it comprises of hundreds of bamboo-like poles that stand in the prevailing wind. As the wind increases in speed, the poles flex and bend to become stronger and in the process get scratched and marked, creating a dynamic visual record of the weather.

Internally, the sculpture conceals a ventilation shaft for the South Island Line MTR station below. When viewed from the surrounding high-rise buildings above, the sculpture takes on yet another dimension – that of a super-sized pot plant that sits within the garden.

Sense of Green is an oasis of calm in the urban jungle of Hong Kong.
