Mountower

山廈

YEUNG Wyan, TSE Serena

Some cities are famous in terms of the intensity of their towers; Hong Kong is one of them. The hyper-dense construction generated from the limited developable space and hilly terrain has directly shaped the phenomenon of habitation in the city. The Mountower is a desire driven project for Hong Kong urban modernity. When the phenomenon of micro apartments and personal space abundance  has pushed more of our dwellings to communal space, public domain, parks and beyond, mountains starts to stand as an extension of all the other tall structures. Mountower is framed to be the uncanny mountain that carry the ghost of towers. Humans trapped in the capsule of more capsules.


「山廈」代表著當代香港生活現象所衍生的社會慾望。我們對於城市的印像一直受到高樓大廈的影響。地標式建築、財富象徵、權力延伸等因素影響著城市頂端的輪廓。香港就是從這樣的誘因演變成今天的面貌。由依靠佔領海域得來的開發空間到丘陵地上的高密度大樓,它們容納著人民在資本主義下的事與情。當城中高聳大樓裡的微型空間把人民驅離到公共領域,並把他們推向到郊野公園與高山深澗時,山巒成為了大樓的替代容器
