Exploring a new mode of sustainable development: taking the hyperdense city of Hong Kong as an example
Hyperdense and compact city, Proximity, Landscape, Scale, Hong Kong
This paper proposes a new interpretation of a sustainable development mode through the study of the special context in Hong Kong. The authors find that the hyperdense and compact city development in Hong Kong coexists with a network of three dimensional green and blue assets in very close proximity, making possible an unique and new perspective. The paper looks into the achievement of city, park and waterfront development in Hong Kong. The significant role of landscape architecture in reinterpreting and balancing the relationship between nature and humans is explored. The paper concludes with a suggestion of a new contemporary mode of a sustainable development that can be of significant reference for current and future dense city development.
