|Express Rail Link West Kowloon Terminus, Hong Kong (Completion year: 2017)|
The Express Rail Link will connect Hong Kong to major cities in Mainland with the largest high-speed rail network in our history. Upon completion, the 380,000-square-metre West Kowloon
Terminus with fifteen tracks will function more like an international airport than a rail station.
The site's immediate adjacency to the future West Kowloon Cultural District and Victoria Harbour requires a design which is motivated by civic demand. As a 'gateway' to Hong Kong, it is vital to make every arriving and departing passenger aware that 'I am in Hong Kong'.
