Bathhouse Stairs

Objective

Living in public space is normally defined as homelessness where living outside is a temperoay or impermanent arranged. For example, camping, street sleeping, backpackers, homeless people. However, the concept challenged in Hong Kong after the 2014 Umbrella Revolution, when how to live to regulated public spaces became a hot issue. During the movement, a brand new social system was developed and it was debated how this new ‘society’ could be sustained.

In the section of data analysis, I discover an interesting phenomenon is the arrangement of the shelters. There have a special planning in the occupying areas or the temporary living structure in Sham Shui Po, the special site for observation. Different kinds of typologies and demands could integrate the formation of the concentrated point of living.

In this project, I would like to see what the toilet culture in Hong Kong. Because living space and public toilet have linkage. The people can gain the sustainable need of water, electricity and excretion in public toilet if they live outside. And washroom is classified as representation of the civilization. Can Hong Kong’ public toilet culture represent Hong Kong culture intensity and diversity? Or they could have vigorous reaction between areas of culture?
