“Micro to Nano” is a spatial installation to highlight one of the latest urban phenomena in Hong Kong as one of the densest cities in the world – nano unit (<200 sq ft), which goes beyond the compactness of a micro unit (<350 sq ft).
Architect: Napp Studio Client: London College of Communication - University of Arts London, SPARK: The Science and Art of Creativity - British Council Location: TaiKwun, Hong Kong Year: 2019 Collaborators: Chan Alison, June Yee Design Team: Ho Wesley Hung Lai Manufacturer: Hattrick Photography: Derek Chien
From the architect: This installation is an abstract simulation of the smallest nano unit currently available on the market which is around 160 sq ft and incorporates a living room, bedroom, bathroom and kitchen.
Constructed of a uniform 2”by2” three dimensional grid, the installation is a relentlessly calibrated representation of the smallest nano unit deprived of any décor which draws the audience attention to the actual liveable space in such a compact living environment subtracting the room occupied by all fixtures or daily objects.
It intends to expand the discussion on the future of high density living in developed cities on multiple layers from efficiency VS redundancy to necessity VS hospitability.
Inserted in the Herzog & de Meuron completed art museum, Tai Kwun Contemporary, the new Artist Books Library shares an impeccable lookout to the mid-levels, one of the most significant and acclaimed destinations in Hong Kong.
