Structuring A Hong Kong Public Space Through Implementation of Intelligent Architecture – Sham Shui Po Street Market

This project was developed by Hae Jin LEE as a student from The University of Hong Kong and was submited to the WAS awards 2017 under the Facilities category.

I have developed intelligent architecture solutions for the redevelopment of the Sham Shui Po’s street market according to the five intelligent architecture criteria: biomimicry, skins and spaces, form and movement, the role of technology, and sustainability. This project aims to develop an intelligent architecture solution for the redevelopment of the Sham Shui Po’s street market, retaining its cultural diversity while discarding the problematic design flaws. The design aims to integrate the existing private practices with public accessibilities.

I have looked at Mr. Lam and Ms. Ng’s stall in Sham Shui Po street market. The particular Sham Shui Po street market section our project focuses on begins at the intersection between Kweilin Street and Fuk Wa Street, and the market streets end at the intersection between Fuk Wa Street and Nam Cheong Street.
