RTHK Documentary "Underground Order" features the research study by THEi’s Landscape Architecture students
Radio Television Hong Kong (RTHK) produced an eight-episode documentary series entitled "Underground Order" (地下秩序), in which the 8th episode presents the interview with Mr Paul Chan, Acting Department Head of Department of Environment of THEi and also features the underground space research study initiated by THEi’s Landscape Architecture students.
Five students from THEi’s Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Landscape Architecture participated in a research study for the Development of Underground Space in Hong Kong. Leveraging their experience from the study trip at an underground shopping street in Fukuoka of Japan and follow-up researches, Japan, these students visualise their ideas to the future development of the underground space of Kowloon Park in Tsim Sha Tsui.
In the episode, Jeffrey, Eliot and Rida, three of the students from the project team, elaborate their concepts, “Development of underground space is one of the viable sources of land supply. Our proposal is to enhance the existing neighborhoods in terms of connectivity and the provision of commercial, cultural & art linages by identifying Kowloon Park as the center of activities.”
The students’ study is in response to the Pilot Study initiated by the government to examine the feasibility of developing underground space in four strategic urban areas including Admiralty, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, Happy Valley and Tsim Sha Tsui West.
