Building Outdoor Maze and Pavilions

About 2,000 people of different ages and sectors in the community will be gathered to co-design and co-build 20 big pieces of public furniture featured as “Designer Pavilion” assembled with wooden pallets and located in an outdoor maze of 5,000 m2. The maze that depicts “HK” is made up of 20 themed zones with each encompassing a Designer Pavilion featuring activities with healthy lifestyle, transforming public space into a meaningful place for people of different lifestyles and needs. It will definitely be a challenging yet interesting task for kids, young people, adults as well as seniors.

 

The activity will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for “the longest line of pallet merchandising” by building a 1,020m maze wall by pallets in the event. All participants of “Building Outdoor Maze” will get a certificate issued by the Welfare Council for free. In the event of a successful attempt, participants could apply for a certificate of participation issued by the Guinness World Records with a fee.
