Meroscity – Self organization of Hong Kong typological space


Name: Lei Wu

Nationality: China

Institution / Company: /




This project is a speculation from the deconstruction of Hong Kong’s typological architecture to the self-reconstruction based on the Mereology theory.
Hong Kong as a complex city, like all big cities, has been constructed on the principle of the ruling class. However, in today’s housing crisis, there are still many places beyond the power of the higher class, which create many interesting spatial settlements under the self-guidance of citizens, and nourish the diverse culture. Which leads to the speculative thinking of the new public space, that is breaking through the restrictions of class, and letting the space grow naturally from the perspective of individuals.
This project is speculatively located between Victoria Harbour as part of the reclamation project. All typological particles are derived from the deconstruction of some once famous structures of Hong Kong in the last century, so as to create the spirit of place and the sense of belonging of Hong Kong culture.
Functions include commerce, housing, industry, transportation, religion, etc., as well as additional green blocks, and agricultural and energy cycle purification blocks for sustainability. And set different assembly methods for these blocks, iterating out small-scale Clusters with different emphasis. Finally, after optimization of sunshine and accessibility index, large-scale settlements with complex Mereological structure were formed. In the infinite nested public space, the individuals and the whole have the same meaning.
