“Public Rental Housing Development at Shui Chuen O Estate”
Note: The Hong Kong off-site programs were cancelled due to a Signal 8 typhoon advisory hoisted by the Hong Kong Observatory. The below information portrays the program as it was meant to happen.

Hong Kong (and other places in Asia) have managed to make the transition to high-rise living in a way that is largely unthinkable in most of the western world. This is especially true in the realm of government-built high-rise “social housing,” which has largely been an unmitigated disaster in the west. It is not unusual to see clusters of a half dozen similar towers, embracing and supporting specific residential communities, across cities throughout Asia. But what is behind these facades? How do these residential clusters manage to function, and provide a level of facilities, urban space, and a system for a sense of community to develop? This program will embrace one such public housing cluster – and convene a number of presentations by those involved in the project, as well as tours of the complex itself.
