GEOG4077 Urban Development and Planning in Hong Kong (3 units)
- GEOG4086 Urban Planning or consent of the instructor
Urban Hong Kong has developed rapidly since the 1950s. The built environment has expanded from one concentrated on two sides of the Victoria Harbour to one encroaching into the New Territories and even spreading across the boundary to Shenzhen. What are the salient features of this urban development, both in the inner city and at the periphery? Is it business-biased? Is it over-dominated by the property sector? How to interpret its growth pattern and dynamics? What is the role of the Hong Kong Government? What is about urban planning? This course will be of interests to anyone who dares to know more about urban Hong Kong and develop an urban model within the broader contexts of China, Asia and the West.
