green pasture 大草披

2013.6.8 | government hq 政府總部 這個地方,讓人愛恨交煎。門常開的名字,好像預先訕笑這政府的封閉灰暗。 然而廣闊的草坊迎著維港,風光明媚。 一個星期六下午,天色半藍陰掩。兩個女子舒鬆地享受生活空間。對岸的黃色巨鴨面向風光,背影倒是清爽。 this is a place i love and loath. it is the government hq. its name is the door. the architect was wishing the government is open and transparent, which now is like a mock. yet this great piece of space, a sweet pasture opens to the victoria harbour […]
