Let's build Hong Kong together!
Our students from the Faculty of Architecture, Ksymena Borczyńska and Bartosz Kobylakiewicz, received an award in the international Hong Kong Pixel Home contest. Their project of a skyscraper was one of the six winning projects, out of 84 works submitted from all over the world.
The aim of the contest was to seek solutions to the problem of shrinking building space in the city. In order to maximize the benefits of new buildings, they need to be effectively planned.
The new modular system, introduced in the newest living spaces, includes specific modules, like residential, service and communal spaces. The communication and technological core is located in the centre, which allows to adjust the dimensions of the building to the shape of the plot, while the modular system enables to adapt the height to the needs of a particular space.
