title Scientific Modeling for Bridging the Environmental Design and Social Behavior in Hyper Dense Urban Open Space Planning

summary In Hong Kong, about 46% of the population lives in public housing estates. The density of the estates could be as high as 2,500 persons per hectare and there is an increased pressure for increasing the density. Therefore, open space in the estates contributes significantly for relieving the sense of over-congestion. Preliminary study shows that the usage of these open spaces is as low as 1.36%, and the low usage rate is largely due to inappropriate planning and design, particularly with respect to climate requirements, rather than insufficient area. Researchers thus attempt to overlay the user-behavior with the environment-behavior data to investigate the impact of irresponsive environmental design on the user-behavior. It is also this exercise that provides new thoughts to research of social behavior and activity study for high density urban habitation.
