It has been an interesting semester thus far in my second year of architecture. We are working on Architectural Urbanism, exploring how architecture effects the city, and how a single building can change a certain site.
Our first step was to analyse the site-Monkok, a highly dense area in Kowloon that hosts a range of programs like street markets, book stores, live-work lofts, illegal structures, and big box malls.
The analysis of tenement housing in the site led us to the discovery of the eventual reclamation of the whole area.
I am excited about the next step of design and finding interventions that will change the city’s fabric.
Here is the full analysis with textual description and other drawings:
