Abstract

战后香港发展成一个高密度城市,如何在安置大量人口的同时创建一个宜居的生活环境成为一大难题。过去几十年间,以"上住宅塔楼、下商业裙房"形式设计的商住楼成为香港最普遍的住房建筑类型。通过阐述裙房塔式商住楼的历史,指出这种建筑形式系香港应对城市高密度问题的产物。解释香港的建筑规范如何影响裙房塔式商住楼的设计,同时分析了商住楼设计在这些年的变化。
In the decades following the end of the World War Ⅱ, Hong Kong grew into a high-density city. During this period, the tower-on-podium residential building complex dominated the cityscape of Hong Kong. This article provides a historical account of the toweron-podium building and points out the fact that this building type is a product of Hong Kong’s long effort to regulate the living environment amid rapid population growth. It demonstrates the ways building codes shaped the architectural design and eventually produced an architectural prototype for the high-density comprehensive development in Hong Kong.
