The purpose of this project is to develop recommendations for the creation of a public space which encourages cross-generational interaction in Hong Kong. We collaborated with the Chinese University of Hong Kong in their efforts to redevelop Sheung Fung Lane in Sai Ying Pun. To understand the current state of the space as well as document its daily use, we observed the lane and compared it to similar public spaces. We also developed and implemented an interactive design activity within Sheung Fung Lane that engaged the community in the redesign of the space. We recommend a plan to improve the space for its community by implementing intergenerational activities and introducing novel features based on community desires.
