Abstract

As part of the development of the Smart Cultural Triangle Precinct (SCTP) in Hong Kong, our team worked with Urban Design and Planning Consultants Int’l and the Institute of Sustainable Urbanisation to assess and provide new ideas and visions for the creation of the SCTP. Based on our observations, interviews with professionals, survey results and desk research, we suggest that improvements be made to the pedestrian areas and open spaces within the SCTP. Improving these public areas will help to improve the value of the local built heritage as people become encouraged to explore their local community. We also provided our sponsors with suggestions for online tools to serve as a knowledge exchange platform and a way for visitors to learn and interact with the area and the activities within.
