Negative Block

The Hong Kong Block is congested as it has veins but no arteries. The leftover spaces -alley ways- have a life of their own. Due to the typical HK block type and density these spaces have been littered by all the necessary appliances that buildings need (ducts, ventilation fans, air intake grills, etc…) as well as spaces that buildings don’t simply have. The project proposes to turn the block inside out to reverse usage, the streets then become alleyways and in return alleyways are turned into public space.The internalised block allows for a different collective life.

 

虛市

香港城市街區內部樓宇之間,時常充斥著各種廢氣、廢水及廢物,擁擠並且通常被人遺忘。其實,這些被人們遺忘的空間亦都可以擁有自己的生命,重新恢復活力。此項設計,希望通過將街區內部的消極空間,轉移至外部,從而為人們提供更多小尺度、社區共有的公共空間。
