After two year of urban exploration in the neighborhoods around Kai Tak River, Hong Kong, I just come back. I am expanding my research around San Po Kong/Wong Tai Sin urban area. During the residency program I will lead research, workshops and lectures at the Department of Architecture and Fine Art, Chinese University of Hong Kong, also producing urban action and several works about the neighborhood existing condition and local history.
In order to enriching his research, I am particularly interested in the urban transformation area since the 1967 riots started from plastic flower factories workers. It may have influenced the neighborhood industries and its urban landscape.
