The inner shape and volume underneath the flat pool of water are defined by the footprints of all the previous pavilions.
"Their shape varies: circular, long and narrow, dots and also large, constructed hollows that have been filled in… These remains testify to the existence of the former Pavilions and their greater or lesser intervention in the natural environment of the park."
Australian photographer Ward Roberts makes dizzyingly sublime photographic images by layering several individual images of Hong Kong. He seek minimal forms and colour in the landscape and then shoots from various perspective points. The end result is a dimensional statement on the opacity, transparency and reflection found in contemporary architecture.
"I find myself drawn towards repetition in colour, shape, space and form. When it comes to shooting, I am always trying to find the cleanest composition. I have recently made the decision to focus my style more towards minimalism as I find it to be a very pure form." - Ward Roberts
