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 the urban renewal in Hong Kong, including the problem of urban decay and the mission of work of the URA. The UREC, which has been relocated to the community space on the ground floor of The Center in late 2017, presents a real-life experience of dilapidated housing, 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 Liberal Studies, for secondary-level education. The centre presents a real-life experience of dilapidated housing; interesting exhibits; iBeacon-enabled E-Tour Guide; Augmented Reality; Kinect Game and UR Info Hub.
