BYOB in West Kowloon

After going to the Matinee for 'Hijacking the Northern Star' (which by the way is a very good play with some strong acting from a bunch of AnD actors), I headed over in the evening to the West Kowloon Promenade.  This is where they held the opening for the new BYOB outdoor exhibition of Urbanism and Architecture.  It's a short walk from the Elements mall and exit of the Airport express Kowloon station. 

I first learned of this from Daniel Wu's blog about his involvement:  http://www.alivenotdead.com/daniel/If-I-had-to-quit-acting--profile-853082.html

I saw the pictures and knew I had to pay a visit.  It is an amazing structure designed by Daniel Wu and coupled with some innovative LED lighting designed by Teddy Lo, the curved bamboo structure create a welcoming and inspiring environment underneath the concrete congestion of the ICC skyline.  Here are a few shots I took from the night, and I think any photographer or filmmakers would fall in love with this location and the structure and hopefully many will make use of this beautiful structure as a backdrop during the next few months when it's up on display.  

     

     Goto the BYOB site to find out more about the exhibit and other items on display there:

On a related note, I saw this picture of the new Guggenheim restaurant appropriately named 'Wright' within the recently renovated Guggenheim Museum.  I love the colors and all those curves.  Beautiful.
