High-density compact city may not necessarily promote beneficiary community interaction. Hong Kong is in the trend of “Double Ageing” where population and building stock are ageing simultaneously at rapid speed. The planning and design of community facilities based on population cohort demarcation is no longer suitable. Could Hong Kong as a vertical city provide space for diversified uses within a high-rise building and thus promote the making of vibrant intergenerational community in a vertical form? This season’s “One from Hundred Thousand” social innovation symposium and its co-creation workshops would explore a new model of vertical intergenerational community for Hong Kong. We hope the making of vertical intergenerational community would enable vibrant interaction and co-living across generations to advance the wellbeing of both the elderlies and the youths.
Co-creation Workshop available for Strategic Partners only
October 7th, 2020
The symposium will explore the topic of intergenerational community in the context of a vertical city from the perspective of the two seasonal strategic partners (Aberdeen Kai-Fong Welfare Association and Hong Kong Young Women's Christian Association). Participants from the workshops in August and September will share their experience and design outcomes. Representatives from the two strategic partners will also share their vision and outlook on the subject matter.
