HK Disneyland unveils landscape design
Hong Kong Disneyland will have some of the most spectacular scenery settings among all Disney theme parks in the world, said Don Robinson, group managing director of Hong Kong Disneyland, here Thursday.
Introducing the landscape design for the resort for the first time, Paul Comstock, director of Landscape Design of Walt Disney Imagineering, said that the first and foremost objective of the landscape design for the resort was to support the strong traditions of Disney storytelling.
"The landscaping is driven by the stories told at Hong Kong Disneyland. It serves to support and exemplify the story lines inside the theme park including a jungle, a castle, fantasy themesand a journey through space," said Comstock.
Comstock, a 14-year veteran of landscape design at Disney, toldXinhua that he has borrowed ancient Chinese view principles with thousands years of history in his design. The principles include view framing, view hiding and water reflection. And those designs make the Hong Kong Disneyland different from the Disney theme parks in other places of the world.
