[Re]Forming Public Space: A Critique of Hong Kong’s Park Governance through Architectural Intervention
This paper’s point of departure is a critique of the Hong Kong government’s somewhat rigid approach to regulating the public spaces of its parks. As an antidote to a rule-bound and somewhat restrictive set of policies, four groups of architecture students at the University of Hong Kong have designed various interventions for a public park in Hong Kong. The projects, entitled Pixel Wall, Fence Off, Border Mender, and Rocky present alternative ways of activating public space through architectural design.
