Sky-way System

Models

Objective

Chung King Mansion is a typical section layout in Hong Kong, the failure of circulation between the residential blocks in Chung King Mansion lead the weak connection between units. A long journal and passing thought the crowd podium level is needed if a personal go to another block. Therefore the functions and activities of units is limited and iterated in each floors of Chung King Mansion.

Due to the situation of Chung King Mansion, and its fictional status and physical context. Instead of replacing and defining new program in blocks of Chung King Mansion, the methodology of design is supplementary a horizontal networking in in- space with negligible effect on existing structure and program. There are two goals of the design, first is the design of the connecting platforms for networking system. Secondly, the rearrangement of the program of units can be tested. It could not build in nowadays’ mechanism, but the methodology and technology are acceptable and it can be built in sooner.

There have evidence to proof that the sky- way is suitable. Beside pedestrian safety and convenience, the chief reasons assigned by urban planners for skyway development are decrease of traffic congestion. Michael R Montgomery and Richard Bean show that the skyway is a design approach to improve the failure of weak connection of an architectural structure.
