AbstractIn the dense urban fabric of Asian cities, anonymous colonization of public space is a common practice. Every city inherits its unique techniques and behavioural habit to adapt within its own urban setting, creating an integral part of the city life experience. It is a result of the tension between the scarce and expensive privately owned space and opportunistic public space. This paper takes Hong Kong as a study field to identify the tactical characteristics of the existing local practice in the public domain, in turning leftover urban spaces into usable resource, with limited infrastructure-an unique vernacular practice of self-built urbanism.
