Placemaking workshop I by Fred Kent - TST

Over 70 participants took part in Hong Kong's first PPS Placemaking workshop on May 22. The workshop used the Star Ferry bus terminus and the Cultural Centre Piazza in Tsim Sha Tsui as site for the exercise. Learning from the world-renowned Placemaking expert– Mr Fred Kent, the participants quickly learnt the necessary ingredients for creating successful public spaces and how to evaluate places using these criteria. The workshop was attended by a broad range of Government, businesses, NGO and University representatives and unveiled startling opportunities (Cultural Centre's buttresses are non-structural and therefore removable) for the area. A report summarising the findings will be compiled and issued shortly.
