In an effort to create and secure high quality housing for Hong Kong, cities around the world that have experienced rapid urbanisation have often been analysed for their qualities.

Held in the City University of Hong Kong, this exhibition sets out to create a dialogue between Vienna – a city renowned for its outstanding achievements in public housing – and Hong Kong, intending to trigger an open discourse about housing on a fundamental level.
"Urbanisation affects many aspects within cities, such as infrastructure, social demographics, economy, ecology, health and safety, etcetera," says Dr Stefan Krakhofer, curator of the exhibition, who also teaches in City University as a visiting assistant professor. "Likewise, this exhibition will address not only the architectural expression of housing, but rather its environmental, economic, social and cultural implications."
This exhibition also features local response which focuses the historic development of mega scale new urban towns in Hong Kong, zooming into their housing typologies, floor plans and project data.
