[HK 3] : A new take on gabions


Today we drove around the New Territories area, between Kowloon and Shenzhen (mainland China).  At the Hong Kong Wetlands Park, I noticed something striking: gabions filled with oyster shells!  Not exactly a structural solution, but definitely an interesting aesthetic one.  I might be the only one to notice such a thing, but it was cool nonetheless (and just about the only thing we bothered to see there, since you have to pay to enter the park itself).

currently :
  • feeling : the effects of jetlag, so too tired to write much more
  • weather : it's starting to heat up around here...
