Hong Kong Fantasies - The Berlage Studio

Hong Kong Fantasies

Post Graduate Design Studio, Fall Semester 2008, The Berlage, Rotterdam (NL)

All cities and regions are a result of different development formulae or models. The more successful cities are those that have based their planning on economic patterns and territorial understandings. This studio postulates that the formula may be found by diversifying the city’s core activities. Hong Kong will be used as a case study. Students were asked to formulate a variety of future scenarios by following possible speculative urban trends for Hong Kong. This studio explored the type of urbanity Hong Kong will need to change. In particular, it focused on the topics of concern potentially needed to bring future spatial change to Hong Kong.
