Collective Tower Hong Kong
1st Prize international competition (Winner)
In recent years, Hong Kong has become one of the most dynamic cities in the world. However, there are many issues that remain unresolved, such as the density of the population, high income and living costs and limited access to land and resources. Furthermore, the high population density is making it increasingly difficult for people to meet their living requirements and support themselves. Life for many in Hong Kong is a real challenge – we would even argue that, for some, life is miserable.
Our proposal is a future strategy for Hong Kong. We want make to quality life better for the people. We cooperate on several floors different kind of green spaces and urban farming. The system of building is light weight and circular with steel and natural materials which are local produced. We planned a system of an irregular open space system.
This open space are the traffic areas and collective spaces, which have a multipurpose use. It is hybrid lively system of collective living where there is also a freedom of living. The dwellings can easily be extended or decreased in this open building system.
