Enjoyable Street Experience – Walkability, Connectivity, Community
This paper is writtern by Mr. Keith Chan.
Hong Kong has been overemphasizing ‘exchange value’ (marketable value). But we need to appreciate the importance of ‘use value’ of space in order to create place that sustains us as human beings. Witnessing the vast undersupply of good street environments in Hong Kong, the author is motivated to look into features which enable good experiences, so that urban planners and policy makers can proceed from merely solving urban problems to designing for living streets.
