When the over-zealous construction is beginning to abate, two roads diverged before contemporary architects: to continue to confine themselves to the formal design of single buildings, or to intervene in the reconfiguration of urbanism and people’s way of life. In this issue we will closely examine the Hong Kong-based ROCCO Design Architects Limited, to find out their endeavors in designing buildings that represent both diversity and conflicts in contemporary world based on issues of community, connectivity,density,individuality, materiality and spatiality at a time when the majority of fellow architects were keen on chasing transient fashion trends and creating surplus buildings.
