Abstract: In this paper, we analyze the point of view of different scholars about “Gating Machine”. We then discuss about gated communities and their spread in Singapore, China and US, hence identifying the main “Actors” and their respective roles as suggested by different scholars in driving the “Gating Machine”. After forming the mainframe and major components of “Gating Machines”, we further apply the concept of “Gating Machine” to Hong Kong. We took an estate where we work and conducted survey to residents and summarize our findings in compare with the literatures’ view, thus, present which extend of applicability of gated communities in Hong Kong, and also foresee the possible effects of the continuous growth of gated communities in Hong Kong. With reference to literatures, we discuss the comparative advantages and disadvantages of gated communities, in which we conclude their impacts in the wide spread phenomenon.
