Event description

Description

Design your city. Everyday touchpoints and interactions.

City Jam is a two-day, design-led hackathon. At it, experienced designers work together designing services for Hong Kong. Teams will develop concepts that look forward to the future of the city, while being founded in the reality of public services today.


Founded in real challenges

Experts will join at key moments to inform the designer’s process. Coming from the city’s biggest public service providers, they’ll add a dose of reality our the work.


Collision of minds

With designers and experts from all different backgrounds in the room, we’ll work across institutional boundaries to find the opportunities that lie in the gaps.


All the themes

Rather than pigeonholing our work into sectors, we are looking at a broad array of challenges all at once: housing, public space, mobility and utilities.

Everyday issues.

Get outside your routine topics, and work on things that affect everyone in the city everyday.

What are we working on?



We’ll design people-centric, future-facing services for Hong Kong.


Public space

Malls. Overhead walkways. Sitting-out areas. Sidewalks. Streets. Parks. Beaches. Plazas. Street cleaning. Benches. Playgrounds. Trash cans. Street lights. How do we use them? Why are there so many funny rules? What else is possible?


Housing

Apartment blocks. Communities. Housing complexes. Lobbies. Postboxes. Clubhouses. Co-living. Rules and regulations. Building management. How do we live together? How do we share our spaces? Could they be more accessible? What else can we do?


Mobility

Trams. Cars. Bus stops. Walkways. Push-carts. Bikes. MTR. Buses. Taxis. Gondolas. Stations and stops. Stairs. Airports. Feet. How do we get around the city? How do we move stuff? What else is possible?


Utilities

Water. Electricity. Landlines. Mobile phones. Internet. Gas. Pipes. Wires. Police. Fire department. Libraries. Post offices. How do we access utilities? How do we interface with them? Is there anything else we all need?
