suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
(Mike) KWOK wai chung: The Project takes advantage of the “disadvantage of the prescribed site. It’s located near the old Kai Tek airport in Kowloon bay and sits remotely away from downtown, Seperated from the regular urban fabrics of the grided kowloon City by an expressway, the site can only be accessed from the nearest bus terminal through a long corridor and crossing by the expressway.
Responding to this unique site characteristic, the internal spatial organization and facade orientations are designed to create controlled views looking into the exhibition corridor while approaching along the path of entry. Viewlines extending from the opposite side of the expressway are used for coordinating internal spacial organization such that at any moment on the external journey, only specify parts of the machines are visible.
