Calexian Director, Dr. Bruckner, served as Juror and Advisor in the organization of the first ever “Outstanding Public Space Awards 2013” for Hong Kong. This joint effort by the HK Public Space Initiative, Designing Hong Kong and RFP Magazine hopes to help isolate the qualities of outstanding public spaces in Hong Kong awhile simultaneously clarifying the areas that need improvement. The nominations were made by members of the public and open voting was collated and made available to the jury at the November 23rd adjudication. Final results and jury selections with comments will be announced in several categories sharing the elements that make them successful public spaces. The O.P.S. Awards program hopes to continue annually with the overarching aim of raising awareness for the importance of public space and encouraging ever better public space design for Hong Kong.
