Register for the webinar on the technical challenges of the Green Deck
The Green Deck (GD) is an innovative design scheme that aims to transform a concrete jungle into an urban oasis and connect all the developments surrounding the Cross Harbour Tunnel Toll Plaza by constructing a deck over the Plaza.
Before turning this project into reality, many technical challenges will have to be overcome, such as thematic and visual design considerations, ventilation and air quality, fire safety, traffic arrangements, as well as structural and constructability considerations.
PolyU and its academics, who are the drivers of this project, as well as appointed consultants from Arup and Rocco Design Architects Associates, will share in a webinar how they have overcome these technical challenges so as to create a GD that meets community needs and aspirations.
The free webinar will be held on 6 October 2021 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm at Chiang Chen Studio Theatre at PolyU and via ZOOM . Interested parties can register here.
