AbstractInfrastructure Imagination: Hong Kong City Futures 1972-1988 is a recent public exhibition held at Hong Kong’s City Gallery. The exhibition showcases major infrastructure schemes completed in Hong Kong in the 1970s and 1980s, the so-called “golden age of construction” which saw unprecedented urban transformation in the territory. Photographs featured in the exhibition are the work of Heather Coulson, a leading construction photographer who specializes in large-scale engineering and industrial projects. In this short essay, the two curators, Dorothy Tang and Cecilia Chu, reflect on the roles and meanings of infrastructure and its relationship with landscapes in the Hong Kong context, as well as the significance of construction photography in exposing these relationships.
