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.
