The inadequate provision of open spaces in urban areas is one of the most recurrent challenges for the Hong Kong government. High-quality open public spaces can significantly increase a city’s attractiveness by encouraging business investment and improving living conditions.

The aim of the workshop is to design proposals to regenerate underused public spaces of Hong Kong’s districts in response to local needs. Four teams of 8-10 students led by a group of international architects and urban designers, representing both academia and practice, will develop an urban design intervention to encourage the use of public space with innovative ideas.

Examples of such interventions include the installation of temporary street furniture; modular pavilions; community gardens; green walls; creative playground and any other imaginative urban actions that encourage residents to actively use public spaces, addressing district-level issues and potentially contribute to improve their conditions.
