A Tower with the Public Realm
The development mechanism in Hong Kong efficiently solved the emerging urban problems and produced a functional living environment. Its pragmatic approach for urban development achieved enormous success in housing provision to the city, however, the success was attributed to the disregard of many other development objectives, and its resultant built environment constantly received criticisms usually related to the design concerns of human scale, architectural diversity, and public realm which were not taken into the main consideration. Given this opportunity to propose a design of a tower, we took the concept of “communal urban space” as its driving force.
