Causeway Bay is a heavily built-up commercial area located on the Hong Kong island. Heavy pedestrian and traffic flows must be carried being “the shoppers’ paradise” for people around the world, sustainability certainly became a major issue.
The central concept of the project “Circulate” is to improve movement efficiency by introducing a “pedestrian priority zone” in order to reduce emissions and accidents, the design of the area will also improve its adjacent route connections.
Another notable issue being the homogenic mass production of the world causing the loss of Hong Kong’s identity, therefore, traditional oriental elements and theme shall be applied in terms of designing.
