Public Realm, Discovery Bay, Hong Kong


Working with landscape architect, Randle Siddeley, and the HK landscape designers Urbis Ltd Andrew Moor designed this glass sculpture for a private garden on a hillside in Discovery Bay.

The tallest monolith is 2.5m above ground level; the smallest about 1.7m tall. The glass is made with thin strips of glass fused together, and bonded back-to-back to create great strength. They have been resin-bonded into steel boxes, which are bolted to a concrete foundation. Because of typhoons they are designed to withstand winds up to 170mph!
