Short Cuts: Alternative Infrastructures in Hong Kong and Chicago

Chicago Architecture Center, 111 East Wacker Dr.
Chicago, IL 60601 United States

In Hong Kong, a network of pedestrian passages connects public and private space in one of the densest cities in the world across a challenging topography.

Whereas the estate had previously been developed with a focus on religion and health care, it now profiles itself as a ‘Sports & Talent Park’ where talented young athletes can stay, grow, and play. Given the velocity of developments over recent years, the predictions of consumer demand were quick and efficient but lacked a clear vision for spatial planning. You have now the ability to change this. Despite its rapid development there are still many choices to…
