UrbanactionsHK – International Symposium and Workshop

Date & Time

22.05.2017 27.05.2017

Location

AIT Building, CUHK

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

This workshop aims to design proposals to regenerate underused public spaces in Hong Kong in response to local needs. Led by a group of international architects and urban designers from both academia and practice, four teams of 8-10 students will develop innovative urban design interventions to encourage the use of public space.
