Concentrating on the currently developing district of Hung Shui Kiu in Hong Kong’s New Territories, the 200-page book follows student work and projects, workshop results (IFoU Winter School 2013) and exhibition material (2013 Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism \ Architecture) as well as reflections and afterthoughts from a roster of international partners and scholars, including Im Sik Cho (NUS), Roberto Cavallo (TU Delft), Michela Turrin (TU Delft), Maurice Hartevelt (TU Delft), Arnd Bäetzner (Univ.

This publication, as part of the program’s urban investigation, reflects on the results of a “Winter School” workshop organized by the International Forum on Urbanism (IFoU) in January 2013 and a design studio that followed. This Winter School was the second IFoU workshop held at CUHK, five years after the IFoU Summer School “Hong Kong Fantasies”. While the first workshop in 2008 celebrated Hong Kong’s vertical growth in the year of the global financial crisis, the IFoU Winter School asked how Hong Kong’s newly planned development areas could create better homes for their residents.
