Pop Down Public Space

Location: Kowloon, Hong Kong

Type: Construction

Situation: Concept


Everyone is allowed to use the public space. And everyone uses it in the way they prefer.

In this project Patricio imagined the streets of Hong Kong adapting to the use people give it during the course of a day: a morning market becomes an evening terrace and at night, a karaoke stage.

Imagine a structure covering the streets of the city that pops down the elements of public space  at every moment they are needed, a layering of program through the use of hight. The elements that are not needed form a grotto, a celebration of what can happen at that specific spot.
