Interior Architecture Honours Students in Hong Kong

Focusing on the socio-spatial consequences of Hong Kong’s high-density urbanism, the project is framed through analysis of Sydney’s 2031 plan that proposes a shift in emphasis from suburban growth to high-rise apartment living.  The field work presented an opportunity for Interior Architecture students to study the conflicts and opportunities that high-density urbanism generates in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is one of the densest cities in the Indo-Pacific Region. Students were guided by UTS IntArch Honours director Gonzalo Valiente and Hong Kong Polytechnic University academic Dr Gerhard Bruyns, an expert in the socio-spatial consequences of Hong Kong’s high-density urbanism.
