FAB Ideation

FabCafe Hong Kong is a creative community platform. We want to connect people from various different fields of expertise to collaborate on meaningful projects together. FabCafe provides a space and digital fabrication tools that encourage exploration of innovative and exciting ideas for businesses and individual creators.

At FabCafe we host ideation sessions to delve into various social or environmental problems and use creative techniques to explore solution ideas. It is also an opportunity to practice Design Thinking and foster meaningful conversations. 


THEME “Redesign Open Spaces for the New Normal”

Hong Kong has been ranked the least affordable housing market for the 10th year straight, as it takes the average family 20.8 years of savings to afford a home in the city. As a result, many Hongkongers are forced to live in extremely small living spaces. For some, it can feel claustrophobic and suffocating, and open public spaces are needed to alleviate stress and breathe fresh air. 

Within this dense urban jungle, however, space is one of Hong Kong’s scarcest resources. For every resident there is only 2.7 square metres of open space compared to Singapore’s 7.4 and Seoul’s 6.1 square metres. The lack of open public spaces combined with small living spaces has a significant negative impact on both physical and mental health. And with the continued severity of the COVID-19 pandemic, social distancing regulations and work-from-home arrangements, we are becoming more isolated than ever before.

According to the United Nations Development Programme, providing access to safe and inclusive green and public spaces is an important target for sustainable cities and communities (SDG11). As a pre-event for the Global Goals Jam 2020, we will explore solutions together in this online mini jam.
