Urban Renewal Exploration Centre
Since its opening in August 2009, the Urban Renewal Exploration Centre (UREC) has provided students, community organisations and the general public with information about urban renewal in Hong Kong, including the problem of urban decay and the mission of work of the URA. The UREC, which was relocated to the community space on the ground floor of The Center in late 2017, presents interesting exhibits, interactive multimedia facilities and sharing corner. It aims to inspire visitors to understand and approach urban renewal issues from various perspectives.
The UREC also serves as a platform for the teaching of General Studies for primary-level education, and Integrated Humanities, Life and Society and Geography for secondary-level education. The centre presents a real-life experience of dilapidated housing; iBeacon-enabled E-Tour Guide; Augmented Reality; Kinect Game and UR Info Hub.
