Hong Kong Vertical Mixers

Mixed vertical living strategies for a densily populated city

BA Design studio, Spring Semester 2015, Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI), Hong Kong (CHN)

What housing towers appear when public program are integrated? What vertical organization is needed? What living qualities can then be discovered? Does such a vertically mixed tower bring a desirable diversity to the HK housing market? What kind of vertical communities could emerge? What values? And what typologies? What new concepts of living can we think of? What new lifestyles could then emerge? This studio explores the potentials of mixed-use housing towers. It aims at designing innovative mixed-use towers that unfold and expose new high dense living strategies, its advantages, disadvantages and spatial qualities.
