The jury noted that the Tamar Development Project is “an intricate complex facility that incorporates various government buildings along the city’s waterfront and harbor.” Because the building functions as the seat of Hong Kong’s government, the team structured the design around clear, socially relevant design strategies that address public ambitions. Creating a sense of openness to new ideas and cultures, the design fosters physical and symbolic connectivity with a variety of open green spaces.
