-FINALIST of Hong Kong Drone Port Competition


The terrain of Hong Kong is mainly hilly and the transportation network is very dense, so our project avoids changing the original construction plan as much as possible. We decided to locate Jellypus at Victoria Harbour, one of Hong Kong’s most important ports, where the world’s cultures and wealth flow.

Jellypus have extensive contact with surroundings, use several floating suction cups to collect algae, and then send them to the bottom for recycling. In collaboration with solar energy, the port provides energy for itself and cleans the ocean. It will replace the Hong Kong Macau Ferry and heliport as a transport hub for passengers to connect with air, sea, land, and even subway lines (Other scattered small drone ports can be built on top of existing buildings or hills).

The architectural design is inspired by the octopus, which has extraordinary powers of mind and spends its entire life thinking and exploring, two-thirds of its cognitive abilities are not in its brain but in its tentacles. Passengers can tour and rest in the octopus’s brain, wait for other passengers bound for the same destination, then walk past the tentacles of the octopus to the appropriate tarmac and board the drone.
