The cityscape of Hong Kong is defined by unique vertical fabrics and rapidly changing urban conditions. However, the mode of current urban regeneration is dominated by super block development, centralized management, and the desire to create gigantic icons. The dense, heterogeneous, and spontaneous urban fabrics representig our unique HK living culture are gradually eroded and replaced. Is there a way in urban design or architecture to capture, transform, or impregnate our unique urban texture and culture?
Hence, the design attempts to reclaim Hong Kong’s unique vertical,heterogenous fabrics that are gradually being eroded by large scale development. The project begins with a tiny lot in downtown Hong Kong which is 7m wide by 30m deep. We aim to regenerate urban vitality by designing an open, vertical building that allows future users to compose and contribute their own urban entities. By exploring the scale and arrangement of surrounding street fabrics, a vertical synthesis of heterogeneous fabrics is proposed.
The vision is to create a new type of building that can be an active participant to generate vertical street fabrics.
香港的城市面貌是由獨特的垂直肌理和快速變化的城市環境組成。然而,目前城市更新的模式是由大型發展,集中管理和大型地標為主。香港城市文化獨特的密集性,多元性,自發性肌理正在逐步被蠶食和取代。可不可以在城市建築設計上回應我們獨特的城市肌理和文化?
因此,我們設計上試圖重塑逐漸被大規模開發蠶食的多元性肌理。該專案基地很小, 寬7米,深30米。我們的目標是設計一個開放的,垂直的建築,可以讓未來的用戶撰寫和貢獻自己的城市實體去再生城市活力。通過探索周圍街道肌理的規模和結構,合成一幅垂直街景。
我們的願景是創建一個新的建築類型,一個積極的參與者,重塑一幅多元豐富的垂直街景。
