Hong Kong looks great - from a distance! 眺望香港‧令人心醉!
Hong Kong is blessed with stunning natural settings, a drama of islands and bays and steep green mountains. Dotting that landscape is an imposing man-made landscape of densely-packed skyscrapers and colorful lights. It looks great - from a distance.
香港得天獨厚,擁有令人歎為觀止的天然環境、島嶼、海灣、高山,配合繁華密集的高樓大廈及五光十色的都市景致,遠看的確壯麗吸引、魅力非凡。

Up close, the magic is gone, and beauty is replaced with an often ugly reality. Between glittering skyscrapers and sparkling shopping malls we have cracking sidewalks, concrete barriers, metal railings, temporary signs, canopies, and ever more cheap and nasty clutter just about everywhere. Not only is our urban streetscape getting uglier - this clutter is penetrating our rural and country park areas as well!
但在近看之下,瑰麗的魅力卻會驟然消失。取而代之, 卻是醜陋處處──混凝土路障、金屬欄杆、臨時路牌,以及到處令人討厭的混亂。香港的市區變得越來越醜陋,這現象更擴展至鄉郊地區!

It does not have to be that way! 香港不應是這樣的!
How do we get ahead of our standards and guidelines, and have common sense and creativity infuse decision making. How do we raise awareness for less clutter, and advocate beauty? Can we agree on what is beautiful in Hong Kong, and what is ugly?
我們應怎樣向決策者灌輸有關規劃標準及指引, 一般常識及創意思維? 如何令各界關注減少規劃混亂, 確保香港的美麗?但最首要條件是, 我們要指出那些是香港的美麗, 那些是香港的醜陋?

CitySpeak is a forum which brings people from all walks of life together with designers, professionals, policy makers and civic activists to discuss how we can change mindsets, design and engineering practices, and make Hong Kong as pretty from up close as it is from a distance.

Leading up to the November 21 forum, the Gallery at the Fringe Club will display images of beauty and ugliness in Hong Kong, collected by architect Oren Tatcher. The exhibition is meant to stimulate debate: What is beautiful? What is ugly? Who decides? How do we improve our shared urban and country space so that Hong Kong is more beautiful for everyone?
配合11月21日的討論主題,藝穗會將會展出一批有關香港美與醜的圖片。建築師Oren Thatcher收集了一系列香港最美及最醜一面的圖片,希望透過是次展覽,誘發觀者作出思考,討論何為美醜、由誰來決定美醜? 我們怎樣分配市區及郊野的空間, 令香港在各人眼前一亮!
