macau [ morphosis ] Waterfront Fun Palace

 

MACAU - THE RECLAIMED CITY OF CASINOS

More than 80% of Macau Government's revenue is from Casino taxes alone. (2018 – first quarter 2019)

Two-thirds of Macau today was built on top of land obtained through reclamation.

City development favours Casinos complexes rather than social spaces.

OPPORTUNITIES

Macau, predicted to be the richest city on Earth, has the financial resources for urban scale development.

The Macau New Urban Zone, an ongoing large-scale land reclamation project, is currently at planning phase.

Having alternative forms of entertainment or social spaces would benefit both locals and tourists.

POTENTIAL TYPOLOGY

Theatre / Cultural & Art Centre / Sports Complex / Theme Park / Amusement Park / Carnival

A mixture of public entertainment facilities that could redefine the City of Casinos: A WATERFRONT FUN PALACE (Concept of Cedric Price)
