The interstitial Hong Kong team will introduce the exhibition, followed by a short interactive workshop on Sitting-out Areas in Hong Kong.
Only for sitting? What else can we do in our Sitting-out Areas?
Though currently designed for passive uses only, the irregular sites and unusual locations of SOAs might suggest a wide assortment of engaging programs and spaces for nearby communities.
For me? Who is invited to our Sitting-out Areas?
SOAs, like many of Hong Kong’s public spaces, come with rules for use and constraints on access, leaving some groups of people either explicitly or implicitly unwelcome.
Any stories? What small pleasures do our Sitting-out Areas conceal?
Though small, many SOAs discretely tell the story of Hong Kong and its communities, while others manage a space of escape just meters from the city around it.
Why not here? Where do we need more Sitting-out Areas?
SOAs are not equally distributed throughout the city — they occur where they can rather than where they should. How can community needs inform the process of locating new SOAs?
Beyond boundary? How do Sitting-out Areas contribute to the larger urban environment?
A pedestrian link, a green-shaded pocket, a pervious patch, a micro-habitat — though small, SOA’s are part of the fabric of the city and contribute to its performance.
