I’m always surprised by the lack of advertisement for the exhibitions at ArtisTree in Tai Koo. I really love this place and that the shows are always related to architecture, I think it is very interesting. But I am sure I missed quite a few events, as there was no poster at the MTR or notice in one of the free HK event publications… anyway, it was just coincidence that I managed to visit the travelling exhibition Nightscape 2050.
The show is organised by Lighting Planners Associates (LPA) from Japan and focuses on the visions for the future of lighting. It has already travelled to Berlin and Singapore and received favourable response.
The exhibition features five interactive light experience rooms – for example, one focuses on the introduction of basic concepts about warm/cold light temperatures, shades, movement etc. Another one shows light in Hong Kong – including commercial lighting, light pollution, light in the countryside and more.
I found the most interesting section the one where Hong Kong designers share their vision about Hong Kong’s nightscape in 2050. From connecting bridges between buildings to tunnels of light underneath the harbour:
The show is on until January 30,2016. it is open every day from 10am to 8pm, except on the last day when it closes at 5pm already.
