Abstract:

The notion of impermanence underlies, to a significant extent, the urban design language of Hong Kong. The city intensely urban environment has long reflected embedded patterns of change and temporality in both its physical and cultural dimensions, a forever reconstructed city of dislocation, adaptation and imagination. These characteristics are intrinsically interwoven within Hong Kong s street and spatial patterns, producing a special sense of immediacy and transience insinuated with the fabric and memory of the city. This may stem on one hand from a philosophy of change inherent in cultural traditions, but on the other it reflects more tangible aspects of the streetscape accumulated from historical imprints, regimes of temporarily, and the constant renewal and transformation of the urban environment.
