The 'Why factory' throws down the gauntlet to the city of Hong Kong. What role will Hong Kong be fulfilling in the future? Which specialism should the city focus on in the trial of strength with other cities, such as Shenzhen, Shanghai and Singapore? What objectives need to be set? What are the ingredients that would be appropriate? Can Hong Kong deploy its relatively high quality to develop itself further? And if so, then how? "Hong Kong fantasies" plots out alternative paths, new visions and strategies for Hong Kong's urban and architectonic future. Sustainability and globalization play a leading role in specific spatial interventions that underpin progressive developments in the future
