Seminar - Design and Technocracy: Rethinking Public Space in Hong Kong through Des Voeux Road Central

Co-organiser / Name of Participant(s)
University of Hong Kong and Columbia University GSAPP Studio -X

Urban design and planning in Hong Kong are highly technocratic, driven in a large part by regulatory, bureaucratic and economic imperatives. Taking a current proposal to pedestrianise Des Voeux Road Central as a case study, this panel will discuss alternative approaches that might bring greater emphasis to quality of life, experience and innovation in the design of Hong Kong's spaces.
