Results announced for HK alternative car park

Location :
Hong Kong
Type :
Open to all, International
Admission fee :
N.A.

As promised ,we have followed the Hong Kong Alternative Car Park Tower competition , and today, the results are here .

Should we want to be more critic , we would have said that ALMOST all the winners have missed the point of the competition (at least as we understand it ), which was to create more user-friendly, or agreeable spaces in a car park..
A careful look at the works reveals that MOST winners followed the current trend of architecture and have created architectural objects , of which design is focused on the EXTERIOR and not INTERIOR space. In most works the car park is still the same.
Putting a shopping mall in a car park (on a different level) does not improve the parking experience itself, nor does it differ a lot from a normal car park that is aside from a normal shopping mall.  same argument for putting a swimming pool under the parking, or attached to it.
That being said – some of the work DO have good designs , and in our opinion, the best ones were actually not in the winners section, but in the Honorable mention section.
But that of course , only if we really want to be critic.

So without further ado , The winners:
