Des Voeux Road Central at UABB Hong Kong

11 January 2016

GSAPP Studio-X is collaborating with University of Hong Kong architecture students on concepts for the pedestrianization of Des Voeux Road in Hong Kong Central. Central is one of the densest and most congested urban areas in the world, and one of the districts in Hong Kong with the poorest air quality. Commissioned by the DVRC Initiative, a nonprofit coalition of organisations advocating for the transformation of Des Voeux Road Central into a pedestrian and tram precinct, this project investigates strategies for creating a new type of linear, catalytic public space in Hong Kong.
