UG16 – On Wings

On Wings, representing the hearts of graduating students that will soon take-off their own journey in pursuing their dreams, aim to provide idyllic and iconic architectural structure on the university area which would bring forward students’ identity as a creative and innovative youth, whilst at the same time promoting sustainable green living environment. Two stainless steel bird sculptures are supported on a tree system made with metal rods. The tree would be founded inside some planters, which are connected to a decorative green wall to showcase an eco-friendly environment. Main engineering considerations include the existence of wind load, especially during typhoons as the structure would be located outdoors with little shadings.

Liking the bird design concept and the openness of the structure. Great implementation and design!

As an HKUer myself, I am very excited about this new aesthetic addition to the HKU landscape. Truly a testament to HKU students’ intellectual capacity and creativity.

Looks very grand and enjoyable. I could see myself having a nice walk and being able congregate with my schoolmates in that area.

A very interesting project indeed! This project just excited me as an HKUer to see a new side of Haking Wong Building. Wish the team Best of luck! 🙂
