The design studio explores Locus by looking at how architecture is shaped by the forces of the city and, in turn, how architecture can shape the city’s transformation. The students will work on a dense site in Hong Kong’s Sheung Wan district. Students are asked to develop design propositions for this existing urban context that explore “Bridge” as a structural, spatial and programmatic concept.
Students use a mapping of the site to construct a narrative. This narrative generates ideas for a programmatic intervention on a specific site and a spatial intervention.
