Lecture Information
 
The notion of Vertical City has been considered a feasible solution to accommodate the population expansion, limitation of habitable land and environmental sustainability, such as in Hong Kong. The lecture engages on how the history of Hong Kong has shaped our city, and how the evolution of tall buildings in Hong Kong has grown gradually to become a vertical city. From the case studies in Hong Kong, it can be seen that the advantages of high efficiency, space savings and time convenience, etc. are largely presented. There is no doubt that Hong Kong serves as a role model for all other cities that are also facing high density planning due to population and economic growth.
