Hong Kong Interim Urbanism

Former Kai Tak Airport, Hong Kong

The Kai Tak Airport, which closed in 1998, is currently a void within the urban fabric of Hong Kong. Ripe for development, the peninsula is currently planned to be the site of typical Hong Kong housing and amenities including shopping malls and uneventful open space. By placing a recycling center lightly upon the water, the byproducts of construction can then be used to fabricate easily erected sheds. Providing a space to address social needs and experimentation, the interim nature of the project can provide space for art, performance, and gathering as well as space to serve the large construction site, such as volunteer clinics and office space.
