This year’s Hong Kong Biennale puts emphasis on the age of a city, even this is an oversimplified description, it does presents the main features and issues of a city. People always have romantic associations to old places, but for Hong Kong and Taipei, fast development because of the economic development 30 years ago and city like Shenzhen and many other cities in China, most of the developments are based on the economic instead of aesthetics concerns. But still its city character is gradually shown up. This symposium focuses the discussion on the plan and change of those Asian Cities under the population pressure and economic competition while also humanizing the environment to accommodate diversified lifestyles and nurturing an identity as the residents' collective home.
