Aj. Dr. Adrian Lo,
UDDI Program, Faculty of Architecture and Planning, Thammasat University, The Invisible City of Hong Kong - Informal Urban Ecologies
This lecture is about seeing the unseen informal relationships within Hong Kong's Composite Building typology. Typically containing a mixture of guesthouses, kungfu schools, garment factories, restaurants, private dwellings, and other commercial activities, composite highrises are a melting pot of invisible ecological networks yet appearing seemingly chaotic and disorderly to the outsider.
