Tower as a Medium
We believe in the city as the manifestation of our needs and interactions. Hong Kong’s architecture as a medium explores such manifestation through verticality and laid the foundation of our city. While we recognize the substance of the architecture as well as its discourse, we believe our next expedition is to bridge the physical free space with its virtual counterparts to embark in a new discourse of architecture. The Medium Tower is the medium between physical and virtual, freedom and limitation, private and public, information and application, it is an emblem of our needs and interactions. Pixelation forms the whole tower creating numerous physical pocket spaces, addressing the possibility and freedom of the tower typology. While QR codes are integrated on the towers façades, visitors can scan through the series of QR codes on the façade and access online spaces that open up further discourses and interactions. The Medium Tower seeks to establish a complimentary relationship through the online spaces with its context and add layers of insights to the understanding of vertical free spaces.
