Sense of Belonging
Victoria Harbour, with a mixture of beautiful buildings, mountain ridges and waterfront, forms the most unforgettable icon in Hong Kong.
Like Victoria Harbour itself, “The Beacon of Hong Kong” is an interactive, multi-cultural and multi-functional playground where the locals could have fun and the foreigners would visit. It is not only a new landmark but also a place that connects people and builds social harmony.

All Inclusive Design
This installation art embraces diversity and individuality, the hollow letters design and up-to-date AR technology allow people become part of the art. People from all age groups and cultural backgrounds can have their own way to interact with the letter, for instance, sit on it, lean on it, dance, perform or simply take a photo with their friends and family.

An Iconic and Memorable Landmark
Bold fonts with bright colours reflect the beautiful Victoria Harbour night view and imprint a strong image to visitors. Mesh design is incorporated to re-interpret traditional Chinese ‘screen’ craftsmanship and traditional Chinese window frames in a contemporary way. Chinese characters of different districts along the Victoria Harbour are scattered all over the letters, boosting the sense of belonging and forming another angle of appreciation at the same time.

The Beacon of Hong Kong
With all the design, functional, buildable and safety elements carefully incorporated, “The Beacon of Light”, a new landmark is made for everyone to celebrate the vibrant life of our world-class city.
