Hong Kong will hold an open design competition to set the blueprint for restoring the late Kongfu star Bruce Lee's former residence in the city, a spokesman of the Hong Kong government confirmed on Friday.
A spokesman for the Commerce and Economic Development Bureau on Friday said, Rita Lau, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development of Hong Kong met with the residence's owner Yu Pang-lin again on Friday to exchange views on the arrangements for restoring the former residence of Bruce Lee and reached consensus on some issues.
The two sides agreed that an open design competition will be held and the best design will be used as the blueprint for restoring the property. The competition would allow the incorporation of suitable design elements to maximize the use of space when restoring the property to its original appearance. It would also provide an opportunity for the public to take part in the project.
Yu will appoint a surveyor's firm to take charge of the design competition, including setting up an adjudication committee and drawing up the selection criteria.
Yu will take up the chairmanship of the adjudication committee. He will also invite representatives from the Hong Kong Institute of Architects, Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors and Hong Kong Institute of Planners to participate and provide assistance.
