Hong Kong structure

Who would have thought that this spherical moon lantern was built in as fast as eleven days? Though the Golden Moon was quickly done, the Laboratory for Explorative Architecture & Design (LEAD) was able to make sure that the 6-storey high structure would be worth visiting during its 6-day stint in recognition of Hong Kong’s unique building traditions and craftsmanship. The temporary architectural structure designed with abstracted flames in fiery colors and patterns symbolizes the passionate love burning between the Moon Goddess Chang’e and her husband Houyi.
