Public Realm: A Proposal to Pedestrianize Des Voeux Road Central
View the Studio-X Beijing and University of Hong Kong's collaborative project Breathing Life into the Public Realm: A Proposal to Pedestrianize Des Voeux Road Central exhibited at the 2015 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism + Architecture (UABB) in Hong Kong. Commissioned by the DVRC Initiative, a nonprofit coalition of civic and other organisations advocating for the transformation of Des Voeux Road Cental into a pedestrian and tram precinct, this project investigates strategies for creating a new type of linear, catalytic public space in Hong Kong.
The project is directed by Jeffrey Johnson, Studio-X BJ/GSAPP and Eric Scholdenfrei, HKU.
