Tower Park

摩天樓公園: 一種新的高層原型

ZHU Xiao Feng  / Scenic architecture office

Towers have formed a high-density settlement in central Hong Kong. When people living or working in the towers need access to external nature or society, they must first reach the ground to travel to other destinations, such as a restaurant or a park. The "Tower Park" attempts to make a critical proposal on this status through architectural ontology: we invert the figure-ground relationship of a typical tower floor plan. The ring corridor is extracted as a structure supporting the tower and plant growth, which forms a vertical park interlinked by promenades. The spaces outside and inside the corridor are then left for free use. Platforms cantilevered by truss from the corridor structure became sky-property lands for independent buildings, e.g. residential, office, restaurant, shop or cultural facilities in the tower park. People in the surrounding towers can come through sky bridges to share nature and exchange spaces. As a new sky-community model integrated with nature, Tower Park will become a new vitality hub in the city.
