How can Hong Kong’s housing development escape its unrelenting uniformity? How might architects and developers bypass strict planning and building regulations? How might they add more value by creative design? How might they realize innovative and attractive housing towers, towers that would radically change Hong Kong? Hong Kong’s notoriously strict building regulations impose a relentless uniformity on the city.

'Hong Kong Housing Beyond Uniformity' aims to propose new indicators to achieve a proper balance between population density and quality of life. By testing the current Hong Kong housing regulations and exploring new indicators with which Hong Kong’s quality of housing can be improved, it explores various concepts for housing towers beyond the current uniformity.
