The Brief: <What will Hong Kong’s Residential or Office Space Look Like in the immediate future?>
Post COVID-19, will the way that we live and work change? In a densely populated city like Hong Kong, where living space is typically small, there will likely still be a need for office space, but what will it look like? And will designers and developers need to also think about how residential buildings are built to accommodate people’s change in working habits, schedules, and increased focus on wellness? What will these spaces, in which we all spend so much time in look like in the immediate future?
Applicants are required to submit a short presentation to showcase what they think the office or residential space in the immediate future may look like in Hong Kong.
