“Sidewalks in the Sky: The Future Multi-Level City”
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.

Cities are going ever more vertical, and yet all cities rely on the ground plane for circulation, recreation and the myriad aspects of urban life. In recent years the push for greater height and density in cities has seen several seminal projects which incorporate the “horizontal” in the vertical domain, through skybridges and even skyplanes, linking between buildings. In the ideal setting of the world’s first, and most extensive, significant skybridge network – the HongKong Land portfolio in the Central district of Hong Kong – this program will look at the past, present and future of skybridges and urban habitat at height. Presentations from an owner/developer, architect and academic will be followed by tours of the skybridge system itself, and several key buildings within the network.
