Hack-a-Bench a project that reappropriates park benches through an engaging process of re-designing the public facilities with local residents. By bestowing citizens the right to alter public facilities, the project has democratised the privilege to define our cityscape which was once exclusive for professionals. The project is part of “City Dress Up: Seats Together”, a government-funded commission project by the Arts Promotion Office (APO) inviting 20 local designers to produce new park benches for 20 parks in Hong Kong, in celebration of the 20th anniversary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
