01 – Smartgeometry will host its annual conference and workshops in Hong Kong this year.

CHALLENGE: URBAN COMPACTION

Large cities like Hong Kong thrive on density and diversity lending themselves to opportunity in designing stronger proximate communities. Beyond the need for clear energy and limiting pollution, there are complex issues at play such as concentrating population and building infrastructure in contemporary high-rise cities. Cities like Hong Kong are complicated urban systems that depend on predicting ways that lead to good design and high quality urban environments.

The annual Workshop is organised around “Clusters”. In these Clusters participants will work together with a common framework of knowledge, tools, materials and machines.
