Typology City Guide I - HONG KONG

Find places and buildings that other guides will never take you to.

Hong Kong Typology City Guide is a unique opportunity to discover the unknown buildings of Hong Kong. After the success of the Typology Monograph, you can now bring the book in your pocket and find the hidden gems of 20th Century Architecture that most guides won't take you to - on location from your phone.

Following two years of intensive research in five cities, Christ & Gantenbein and their research team at the ETH, Zurich present the first in a series of original city apps for architects and building enthusiasts. This inventory of 20th century metropolitan and essentially anonymous architecture represents a systematic yet subjective compilation of urban architecture around the world. The buildings, many relatively unknown, were chosen in order to provide a basis for looking at metropolitan design in the twentieth century, comparing the patterns and differences in building styles found around the world.

The Hong Kong Typology City Guide shows a selection of Hong Kong building types (some of them are bound to disappear soon)

App Features:
- Building Index
- Map of All Locations
- Favorite Building List
- Contact Info

Each Typology comes with:
- vital statistics: address, date of completion, architect, number of floors
- description of context & history
- floor plans & axonometric drawings
- photos
- map locator
- interesting buildings nearby

COMING SOON: Paris, Delhi, Sao Paulo and Athens Typology City Guides

Ratings and Reviews

Not working on iPhone X

Anita in queens

I really like the idea of exploring architecture on your phone but this app no matter which city series I tried, does not seem compatible with my iPhone X. Nothing follows after I open the app, none gesture is resulting in any interaction. How come? Really disappointed. I thought this was going to make my trip to HK more meaningful. Not seem likely to happen.
