HONG KONG DESIGN INSTITUTE competition
This is our submission to a two-stage international design competition for the Hong Kong Design Institute, promoted by the Vocational Training Council of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. It was selected as one of the five finalists. The site is located in the outskirts of Kowloon, in an area being developed with high-rise apartment buildings. We proposed a low-rise architecture, somewhat like a large park, covered with vegetation as a form of urban greening. Layering up large plaza-like planes, we conceived the entire school as if it was a park. This low-rise architecture comprises four levels: COMMUNITY PLAZA at ground level, usable by all citizens, COMMON PLATFORM, containing the facilities that support the entire architecture, ACTIVITY FIELD, a floating plaza for the students, and STUDENT VILLAGE, in which groups of small classrooms are assembled like a village.
