Instant Culture documents and evaluates the biennale and envisions possibilities for the West Kowloon Cultural District in Hong Kong and its neighboring communities. The expansive forty-hectare site of the future West Kowloon Cultural District not only provides a green open space for art, culture, and leisure, but also creates a paradigm shift towards a new urban strategy for Hong Kong, possibly becoming a model city by emphasizing low-density planning with a low-carbon footprint.
