Our focus is on fully engaging all future capacities for the existing Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts through newly proposed building(s), landscapes and urban connections.</p><p>Developing the framework for our design proposal has been at the forefront of our studio process for the past several weeks.&nbsp; We have begun by researching considerations for performance arts facilities leading us to a gradient of design parameters. Engaging in daily discussions, we have unpacked the cultural, political and social implications of our project proposal. Three key areas have been addressed including program, site analysis and precedent identification.</p>
