HK showcases ideas to restore Bruce Lee's residence

THE exhibition of plans to restore kungfu star Bruce Lee's residence kicked off yesterday in Hong Kong, showcasing creative ideas from the professionals and public all around the world.

Winning entries of the Ideas Competition for Bruce Lee's residence, will be showcased on the exhibition staged in the city from January 23 to March 6.

The competition, launched on July 20, 2009, aimed to turn the former residence of the late Bruce Lee into an attraction to commemorate Lee's contribution to martial arts and the film industry.

As a step forward to take forth the restoration project, the competition received an overwhelming response of more than 140 valid entries both local and overseas.

A spokesman for the Tourism Commission said the winning entries would provide very creative ideas and concepts to restore the residence to its original appearance and to maximize the use of space for the provision of facilities, such as an exhibition hall, audio-visual room, kungfu corner, library and souvenir counter.

All the entries have showcased Lee's renowned philosophy of martial arts "as you think, so shall you become", said Rita Lau, the Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region government.

"We would continue to collect information on Bruce Lee and exhibits for the future facility, with a view to enabling the restored residence to capture the life story of one of the greatest legends of our time," she said.
