artifact description
Victoria Harbour is one of Hong Kong's greatest assets; however, the balance between recreational and commercial uses of the harbour favours commercial uses. Our report, prepared for Designing Hong Kong Ltd., examines this imbalance from the marine perspective. We audited the 50km of waterfront twice and conducted interviews with major stakeholders to assess necessary improvements to land/water interfaces and to provide recommendations on improvements to the land/water interfaces with the goal of making Victoria Harbour a truly "living" harbour.
