As the financial and administrative nexus of one of the world’s densest cities, Central District, Hong Kong – perhaps more than any other urban area in Asia – gives us a futuristic glimpse of what many global cities could look like in 20 or 30 years, where the vertical realm has been thoroughly developed in response to the dual forces of population growth and geographic/self-imposed limitations to horizontal expansion. In addition, the intensity of the district has been further amplified as a result of intensive land reclamation allowing the metropolis to expand into Victoria Harbour, coupled with the circulatory opportunities provided by the world’s largest network of skybridges that traverses numerous prominent buildings in the area. This program will take attendees on a walking tour of Central District, passing by some of Hong Kong’s most iconic skyscrapers, such as: Bank of China Tower and Hong Kong and Shanghai Banking Corporation Headquarters.
