Seminar - Spatial Solutions to Super High Density

  • HKIP Office Unit 201, 2/F, Prosperity Millennia Plaza, 663 King’s Road, North Point, Hong Kong (map)

About the Seminar:

Hong Kong is famous for its super density and compact living. These living conditions have cultivated Hong Kong people's great wisdom in using space and a special high density culture, which have been the subjects of research for Dr. Chan since she co-authored the book, the 逼city. These ingenious solutions and interesting culture also inspired many of her works, including projects like Hysan Place and Hong Kong Architecture Centre under flyover, the exhibition on space saving, various furniture designs and her art and literature. In this talk, she will share her works and insight on these solutions from product, interior, building to urban scale.
