Avoid Obvious Architects：Walk DVRC是一项将香港市中心1公里长的德辅道变成公园的人行道改造计划，因为这里到处都是银行、办公楼和商店，导致人行道过于拥挤，无法形成一个可持续的、适宜步行的市中心空间。
Avoid Obvious Architects：Walk DVRC is a pedestrianization plan to turn 1 km of Des Vouex Road Central in downtown Hong Kong into a park. The area is filled with banks, offices and shops but the sidewalk are over congested to allow a sustainable and walkable downtown.
The project called for a partial pedestrianization so that retail businesses can still deliver their goods during off-peak hours. During peak hours, office workers and residents can enjoy the wider road as part of their park and walkway. Tramways will still provide sustainable transportation throughout the road. Hong Kong is known for elevated walkway and escalators, Walk DVRC will serve as the main spine to connect multiple pedestrian walkways, public spaces and shopping malls. Our phase 1 job is to pedestrianize the western 250m of the entire 1 km Road.
To reflect the history of The Central and Western District, Walk DVRC will curate exhibition, classes and live performance on the road. Design and landscape will serve as the backdrop to allow these art programs to be inclusive and simultaneous. The goal is to make the road vibrant and livable without behaving as a museum.
The area is also filled with old and new context, but food is the most connective culture that everyone enjoys. The design team use Hong Kong food culture as inspiration to design the Street Basket and mobile seating. It reflects Hong Kong position as a city of food while the more modern touch reflects our current sustainable values. The pavilion is a seating, planting, cellphone charging and shading area during the day. At night it is an iconic communal space to light up the quiet commercial district while reflecting the Hong Kong Neon culture. To make the pavilion mobile and flexible, we have provided a car battery to power the LED and wheels at the bottom of the seating.
