Travelling from Hong Kong to Macau got a whole lot smoother – and prettier – when the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge (HZMB) opened last year.
Passengers flying into Hong Kong International Airport and transferring to the HZMB can’t help but be wowed by the 55-km bridge and tunnel road, but before they even get there, the airy, light and welcoming space when transiting through the Hong Kong terminal is nothing short of inspirational.
And as a result, the Architizer A+ Awards, renowned within the creative industry, has bestowed a special mention on the Hong Kong Port Passenger Clearance Building of the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge.
The awards’ seventh edition recognises the work of Aedas chairman and global design principal Keith Griffiths, Aedas global design principal Max Connop and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners partner Richard Paul for their creativity.
The roof undulates in waves, creating a light-filled cocoon to walk through and that reflects the surrounding waters. The columns depict trees, providing a sense of spaciousness and calm. And the whole structure has been designed to be energy-efficient.
Overall it provides a spectacular entry point to the record-breaking bridge that shouldn’t be missed by travellers to Macau.
