Referred to locally as 三角屎坑 (‘saam kok see hang’), or ‘three-cornered shit pit’, Sitting-out Areas are miniature, government-controlled public spaces found throughout Hong Kong. These spaces occupy the interstices of the city’s dense urban fabric and offer a window into the spatial development of the city.

“Interstitial Hong Kong” presents an interactive exhibit showcasing these unique places as a network of physical, cultural, and ecological assets. We invite the public to share their experiences of small-space urbanism and to reimagine the Sitting-out Area’s potential within our city.

“Interstitial Hong Kong” is an ongoing research project led by Ivan Valin, Xiaoxuan Lu, and Susanne Trumpf, instructors and scholars from the Division of Landscape Architecture at the University of Hong Kong. The aim of the research is to present a comprehensive survey of Hong Kong’s smallest open spaces while envisioning new potential for this undervalued public-realm asset.
