Project of the century: Scott Wilson: Kai Tak

Airports

Scott Wilson's introduction to Hong Kong was to produce one of this century's best known and innovative infrastructure schemes. Opened in 1958 following several years of detailed planning and design by Scott Wilson, Kai Tak International Airport has since served as the primary gateway to this regional power house, with its spectacular approach, banking low over Kowloon just seconds before touching down on a finger of reclaimed land, extending nearly 3km out into Hong Kong Harbour.
