For over hundreds of years, it is the Chinese’s tradition to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival, to be gathered under the full moon once a year with family and friends, a symbol of Reunion. With such tradition and folklore, the Moon has always been the main focus during Mid-Autumn Festival as it become brighter, bigger in size and a perfect circle during the Full Moon Phase. Our concept is to bring the distanced Moon closer to the surface of Victoria Park, which gives the visitors a dynamic visual impact, a Synthetic Moon.
In recent years, our society becomes more aware of the term Sustainability, on different aspects of our living environment such as foods, shelters and transportations. As a temporary pavilion, we would propose using sustainable materials which is recyclable after deconstruction or even using recycle material for construction directly, to promote Hong Kong as a sustainable city.
Each year, there are thousands of polycarbonate water bottles distributed and the amount of consumption is still increasing. The polycarbonate water bottles will be recollected by distributer for reuse after distillation. This sparks our concept on our proposal for this year’s Lantern Wonderland 2013, to achieve a sustainable design.
While we celebrate such meaningful tradition of ours, we might as well think about what can be done so that our future generation will grow up in a healthier environment.
