Interior-architect William Lim and his 100-odd designer, engineers and construction worker team, in 10 non-stop days and nights despite high-hoisted typhoons and rain, raced to transform Victoria Park's football field to a celestial, serene, and luminous landscape with the lantern centrepiece as a tribute to Mid-Autumn festival in Hong Kong. Probably the largest ever built lantern in the world, now submitting for Guinness World Records, this photo album documents the birth of a design idea to the set-up of this 35-metre in diameter and 15-metre tall lantern, to the completion before the festival day, and to the final moment of dismantling the lantern. Using 90 Chinese bamboos and 10 steel supports held together by steel cables, 30 computerised multi-colored lights on a multi-media show, together with 38 multi-colored giant goldfish, glowing lotus flowers and lilies, this lantern project has wonderfully married the modern architectural technology with Chinese festive cultural elements.
