PolyU has launched the Inter-secondary School Green Deck Landscape Design Competition 2022 to provide a chance for secondary school students to come up with a creative landscape design for the proposed Green Deck over the Cross Harbour Tunnel Toll Plaza in Hung Hom.


The Competition aims to enhance awareness of the Green Deck proposal in the community and secondary schools, to promote the notion of sustainable, green and healthy living as well as to support STEM education by promoting 3D modelling technology to participating teachers and students.


Funded by The Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust, the Inter-secondary School Green Deck Landscape Design Competition 2022 is organised by PolyU (Green Deck Project Management Office, Department of Computing and Pao Yue-kong Library) in collaboration with the Faculty of Design and Environment of the Technological and Higher Education Institute of Hong Kong.


Mr Alex Lui, Project Director (Green Deck) of PolyU, said, “The environmental conditions in the area around the existing Hung Hom Cross Harbour Tunnel Toll Plaza have been a major societal concern for a long time. Located in Hung Hom for more than 60 years, PolyU is committed to finding an innovative solution to help address the environmental issues and revitalise the district.”


The Green Deck, to be built over the Toll Plaza, would be a unique and innovative social project that will bring long-term benefits to society. The Green Deck will connect the adjacent areas, provide a variety of social facilities and form a landscaped garden over the busy cross-harbour vehicular traffic.


The registration deadline for the Competition is 4 November 2022. Interested parties should submit a PowerPoint presentation on or before the deadline. For more details, please visit the Competition website  or contact the organiser on 34008290 (phone) or info.gdpmo@polyu.edu.hk (email).
