CityScape

城市風貌

YU Frank/ Gravity Partnership

The concept of free space is foreign within the bounds of the city of Hong Kong, dictated by the sheer density of the population and the cost of land. Any free spaceor ‘cavity’ that you come across is or eventually will be occupied. However it is from this occupation that the image of Hong Kong that we know and love is generated. An image where the new and old, modern and traditional, proper and improper, legal and illegal come together, an image that isn't recognisable through a single building alone, but one that is experienced through looking at this intricate cityscape as a whole. Our concept of free space istherefore not of an object or building that provides free space, rather one that amplifies the‘cavities’that it is surrounded by.

 

在香港寸金尺土,地少人多的條件下,“自由空間”這一概念事實上並非我們藉經驗上體會到。所有“自由空間”(我們姑且稱之為“縫隙”)最終亦會遭佔領。但這現象/印象正是我們熟悉及愛上的香港:一種由新與舊、傳統及現代、合理和失當、合法或非法的融合,由眾多建築所構成的城市風貌及空間體驗。“縫隙”作為建築物之間的自由空間,藉建築而存在,而非存在於建築中。
