Have you ever tried so hard to strike a work-life balance by speeding up everything in the hopes of fighting for more personal time, but only to fail? As the new normal causes a sudden paradigm shift in life habits and amplifies flaws in our existing cities, the pandemic inspired us to rethink our future lifestyle. We attempted to understand the desires of future world citizens while observing both weak signals and mega-trends.
THE ANSA envisions a smart future experimental prototype located at the San Tin/Lok Ma Chau Development node with a high integration of work, home, and leisure that provides great autonomy, higher flexibility, and closer connection. We aim to inspire, innovate, and imagine the smart future on four levels: personal (IoT user profile and A.I assistant), communities (the Ansa Pod, the Ansa Hub and the Ansa Pole) , systems (conveyor belt system and loop system), and infrastructure (experience layers and public open space). THE ANSA hopes that everyone can find their own rhythm in this fast-paced world and live their best life.
