Innovative technology facility with over 22 tastefully landscaped hectares

Hong Kong, 香港新界沙田香港科學園科技大道西2號

Now for something completely different as they say: a modern innovation and technology facility occupying 22 landscaped hectares by the Tolo Harbour (near the Chinese University). This multi-green award laden marvel will be of interest to those with a save the environment through technology, engineering and architecture bent; it’s highly educational and popular with schools. There’s also an inviting food court with low-cost Asian and Western eateries so you won’t go hungry. Although in the background the world’s most advanced labs and research centres are busy developing, public areas allow for exploration, appreciation and enjoyment of today’s sustainable technology via a series of displays and exhibitions. Of particular interest is the Green Trail which leads one through 17 green building design features such as water curtains, solar thermal cooling and solar tubes – fascinating! See if you can find the fearsome-looking robot that’s holding, in the palm of his hand, something vitally significant to the planet’s survival. What can it be? A smart phone? An electronic component? Find him and let me know!
