Over the past century, the city of Hong Kong has been transformed into one of the world's most vibrant cities in finance, professional service, transportation and communication. High-rise concentrated urban developments have played a large role in the city's development, creating its characteristic streetscape of extreme intensity and density. The thesis uses Hong Kong as an experimental site to explore new public space typologies that take advantage of this city's high-rises and extreme vertical density. The goal is to create a high-rise built environment that is more habitable and humane. Ultimately, the project may offer added complexity, urban richness and livability to high-rise developments and possibly serve as a prototype for the design of future generations of high-rises in the urban centres.
