FinTech, which was traditionally used in the back-end of major financial institutions, has become consumer-oriented. FinTech start-ups challenge traditional banking modus-operandi by providing financial services that are unique and tailorable to consumers’ needs. Despite their virtual prowess, FinTech providers require physical platforms to engage with prospective investors and consumers directly. As widespread adoption of FinTech shifts financial services away from real venues into online platforms, financial institutions in the 21st century must evolve their image to be more exciting in order to engage with customers and ‘disruptors’ effectively. This project aims to establish new relationships to banking while celebrating the technological revolution engulfing the financial industry. Located in Central Hong Kong Island, the FinTech Bank will serve as a fulcrum for fintech startups, banking institutions, investors and consumers. A concourse of interwoven public and private programmes alters the normative office stack typologies of conventional towers to facilitate more engagement and collaboration between users.
