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.
