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.


城市的自由空間網絡提供著各種的生活空間需要和反映著人與人之間各式各樣的互動,而香港的建築作為這種互動的媒介則不斷地以豎向的形式開拓著不同的可能。我們相信建築的論述與建築本身對城市發展有著同樣的重要性,而實體與虛擬空間的互為影響與交錯是未來建築討論的重要一環。 媒介塔以一系列的方塊組合建構實體空間,同時亦是一連串供掃描開通往虛擬介面裡的資料和交流的立體化二維碼門廊。透過融合和交錯的虛擬和實體空間,媒介塔建立建築與環境的關係,而同時開創和延伸建築和城市的論述,以預視香港高密度城市環境裡豎向空間的可塑性。
