Bridging Spatial Discontinuities


In 2019, the Hong Kong riots made international news; one thing which shocked citizens was the collapse of the Mass Transit Railway system during the events, where the entire network would be shut down for several hours or even days. It raises the question of how infrastructure can be shaped by conflicts themselves in a contested city. What is the essence of the train station that attracts events of various magnitudes, from pivotal societal movements to everyday occurrences? By studying these powers, this can recast the station place to harvest healthy interaction.

With the backdrop of increasingly souring relationships between Hong Kong and China, the main study area chosen is Lok Ma Chau, on the border of Hong Kong as a special administrative region with its neighbouring city, Shenzhen. Imagined as an extension to the Hong Kong-Shenzhen Innovation and Technology Park which is underway in the nearby Lok Ma Chau Loop, the project seeks to harness the power of the railway to bridge spatial distances and bring in people of different backgrounds for citizens to understand each other, creating a new spatial typology by combining innovative co-working spaces and transit to amass a super hub.
