Z-Axis aims at documenting the type of multi-level urban design that is shaped by the hilly and mountainous terrain in Hong Kong. Z-Axis, in mathematical terms, refers to the depth of an object in a three-dimensional coordinate system. Looking into the Hong Kong urban landscape along the Z-Axis, one can gain more understanding of how the topographical factor impacts Hong Kong people’s habitation, and to what extent the land has been altered in an attempt to adapt to the natural environment.
