A Brave New World: Hong Kong, Greater Bay Area, China

Tuesday, March 5, 2019 10:00 – 11:00 JC Cube Auditorium General Session

We open the ULI Hong Kong Conference with an intriguing look at Hong Kong – the place and its people.

How did Hong Kong develop into the global metropolis we see today? What makes the landscape uniquely beautiful, yet notoriously challenging to build upon? How might these natural assets shape future development and what changes will that bring to the built environment? What is the effect of globalization on the changing culture of Hong Kong? How does the discourse of the state relate to the discourse of the market? And how will Hong Kong identity be defined in future generations?

Professor LS Chan will speak on the topic of ‘A Challenge for The Most Liveable City of the World’ while Professor Gordon Mathews will follow with ‘Hong Kong Identity as a Global Laboratory’.
