Pre-Conference Walkshop: Walk the Street, Sense of Life
Walking is one of the best ways to experience our city. As one of the major business districts since the colonial period, Wan Chai is an area full of history that is currently undergoing major changes. In this walk, the Hong Kong Public Space Initiative will guide participants to discover the ever-changing public spaces in Wan Chai and to rethink the relationship between our streets and public life. The tour will showcase different categories and dynamism of the public areas in Wan Chai. Participants of this walkshop will have an opportunity to understand the essential components of an “ideal” public space and through interactive activities and conversations, be able to better envision and understand the numerous aspects of public space design in urban Hong Kong.
Date: 17 September 2016 (Saturday)
Time: 10:30am – 1:00pm
Meeting point: Wan Chai (Participants will be emailed specific meeting details).
