Other information
AbstractThis article investigates the ‘Lost’ urban conditions of Hong Kong, exploring how under-used infrastructural spaces can become integrated into everyday community life. It takes the Mei Foo housing estate as an example, analyzing the residents’ activities within infrastructural spaces as well as representing how they engage directly with the existing environments without the participation of architects and planners. The objective of this article is to learn from the Mei Foo housing estate’s infrastructural space conditions and show the latent potential of inhabiting urban by-product spaces. The present problems affecting the infrastructural inhabitation will be described, with suggestions for future development of the infrastructural spaces.
