The nature of these canopies evolves along the length of Sports Avenue. Initially, they respond to the grand scale of the Indoor Sports Centre and retail experience. As visitors progress along Sports Avenue, the form of the canopies gradually breaks down, varying in size and width. This supports the gradual sense of reveal and openness as visitors travel from the density of the surrounding city to the expanse of Victoria Harbour.

CRAB is also designing particular moments of the masterplan in more detail, such as the Children’s Play Area, Walk of Fame, and Precision Approach Radar building – a ‘mini airport’ museum that celebrates Kai Tak’s history as an international airport.

CLIENT: Kai Tak Sports Park Ltd

LOCATION: Hong Kong

COLLABORATOR: Populous

CRAB Studio was appointed to design the concept and artistic overlay masterplan for the Kai Tak Sports Park, a 28-hectare park with extensive new sports facilities on the site of the former airport. This involved creating the strategic spatial design of the masterplan as well as conceptualising artistic interventions throughout the site.

The masterplan is a structure that holds inspiring moments relating to the passion and endeavours of sport, whilst celebrating the historic past of the former airport site. It is very particular to its context, with various layers of design and history in a clear hierarchy.

The masterplan breaks down the site into a series of diverse and intriguing spaces whilst maintaining the clarity needed in a site with multiple large stadia. Sports Avenue is a key design move that enhances the overall clarity of the masterplan. Functioning as a pedestrian route cutting diagonally through the site at a 45-degree angle, it is the main circulation spine connecting various public transport nodes. This open-air space is strategically covered by canopies, offering shaded and weather-protected connectivity.
