Hongkongers rejoice as you will soon have a new place to visit in the city. Hong Kong is finally getting its own teamLab in July! The launch of Japan’s famous digital art attraction in Hong Kong is a part of FWD’s 10th Anniversary.
Named teamLab Future Park, the local outpost will see MegaBox transform into a multi-sensory paradise. The interactive space covering 10,000 square feet area will feature six curated installations from around the world. So, mark your calendar for the opening of teamLab Hong Kong!
teamLab in Hong Kong: What to expect
The sizeable immersive space at teamLab Future Park Hong Kong will combine visual art and sensory effects. Among the must-see attractions is the ‘Graffiti Nature – Beating Mountains and Valleys, Red List’ featuring mountains of three-dimensional terrain that shifts and undulates as visual and physical cognition becomes separated. In addition, visitors can glimpse some endangered species in the International Union for Conversation’s Red List among other beautiful flora and fauna.
Do not miss out on the ‘Sliding Through the Fruit Field’ installation during your visit. As its name suggests, it is a slide filled with various fruits that “grow” on the slope. There are also bouncing balls around. You can expect many reactions as you slide down and hit a specific sphere type. For instance, when your body collides with the balls, they go flying off in all directions. Or, when a light blue ball which represents water hits the seeds, it blossoms!
Another ‘Light Ball Orchestra’ is like an attraction in teamLab Japan. However, the Hong Kong version has colourful balls which change colours accordingly. Visitors can use their bodies to interact with the balls and make music. Other interesting installations include the ‘Table Where People Live’ and ‘Hopscotch for Geniuses’. Meanwhile, over at ‘Sketch Town’ and ‘Sketch Town Papercraft’, visitors can unleash their creative side. The 2D drawings are scanned and become 3D, eventually creating a virtual 3D townscape right before your eyes!

The large-scale permanent art museums include teamLab Borderless in Odaiba, Tokyo and teamLab Planets in Toyosu, Tokyo. There are also permanent spaces in Shanghai, Macau, and Beijing too.
