Highlight Photos of Walk DVRC at DesignInspire and BoDW
The winning team of Walk DVRC’s International Design Competition, to reimagine a decaying DVRC as a pedestrian and placemaking opportunity, had its proposal showcased at DesignInspire last week. Thanks to all who attended to learn more about the vision.  For their competition-winning entry, the MLA+ consortium takes a radical step and tells the story of a future DVRC through the eyes of a little Hong Kong girl called Flora. DVRC, one of the most important streets in Hong Kong, is reimagined as a linear public space, organised around a central Sheung Wan square and featuring five iconic tram stops, each with an elevated roof park containing specific activities. Here are the highlights:
