The Lost Shoreline…

There is a long lost shoreline in Yau Ma Tei, which has born witness to the history of the city. We reclaimed the sea in pursuit of development. Time passed, and the once vibrant port is now facing redevelopment. While terms like ‘demolition,’ ‘preservation,’ ‘reconstruction’ and ‘activation’ are mentioned, the shoreline has been pushed ever forward. Under the current of development, who is being left behind? Urban renewal, it is not always just the shoreline which is being lost…

An unprecedented theatre experience

To promote the renewal plan for the old Yau Ma Tei district, a consultant firm has been commissioned to create an app called HK5D, to let the stakeholders understand the 5D development plan through an on site audio guide.

This app is an original creation which breaks the linear rules of an audio guided tour. Participants can freely choose their walk according to the map and annotations on the map in the app. They will also have to explore the physical space to search for information needed. The app will also notify them of different live events, allowing the participants to choose their own programme to join, leading to a self-constructed theatre experience. In this programme, your phone will lead you to submerge in the lost ocean, people and events from history, to experience the gains and losses of city development.
