We are privileged to organise a guided tour of the Hong Kong Wetland Park with renowned architect and ink painter Professor Raymond Fung. The HK Wetland Park was originally intended to be an ecological mitigation area. It was developed into the HK Wetland Park, a world-class facility for conservation, education and tourism and features some of the city’s unique flora and fauna. It has received many awards for its architectural and landscape design. Themed exhibition galleries showcase the importance of wetlands on biodiversity, civilisation and conservation. The specially designed habitats are home to an impressive cast of wildlife, including birds, butterflies, dragonflies, amphibians, reptiles and fish.
Professor Raymond Fung (JP, FHKIA) was the main designer of the HK Wetland Park. As a renowned architect, designer and ink painter, he has won the Hong Kong 10 Outstanding Young Person’s Award and the Hong Kong 10 Outstanding Designer’s Award. He has also won 5 HKIA Annual Awards plus over 50 major design and arts prizes locally and abroad. In Ink Art, Fung’s works have been selected in the National Art Exhibition and HK Art Biennale, and largely collected by museums and international corporations. In 2009, he was awarded the Secretary for Home Affairs’ Certificate of Commendation for Art Promotion. Professor Fung is now the Adjunct Professor of the School of Architecture, Chinese University of Hong Kong and committee members to many advisory panels in HK. Apart from his book “The Art of Raymond Fung”, he is also a co-author of five books on architecture and culture.
