There is so much more to walking than walking!
── Jan Gehl
Inspired by City of Glass written by Paul Auster, Sara Wong selected artistic and landscape or urban study projects to build a narrative from the perspective of a city walker. Through works of art, literature and researches, visitors are invited to explore freely in the diverse approaches and perspectives of city and urbanism thinking, subsequently into a wider dimension of reflections about city and city living as a modern urban dweller.
