Exhibitor / TFP Farrells
Kowloon Station Development – Transport Super City project has developed prototype solutions which can be seen elsewhere in Hong Kong. It is entirely new, both in the scale and complexity of the integrated urban transportation infrastructure, and in combining the new urbanism of Asia with the European traditions of place-making, applied here to a large section of the city.
At West Kowloon, the density of the city and the scale of the transport systems to be incorporated called for an innovative three-dimensional design. The infrastructure is organized in layers above the mass transportation core. Apartments, offices, community facilities, hotels and service apartments are linked together by air-conditioned shopping streets and public places at one level, and by gardens, squares and vehicular and pedestrian circulation routes on the podium above. All parts of the design work together in the formation of an integrated, balanced city.
