    On September 20th 2014, our Design and Research studio comprised of 11 graduate students will be traveling for two weeks to Hong Kong in an effort to better understand the geographic and cultural basis for our fall project. 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.

    Developing the framework for our design proposal has been at the forefront of our studio process for the past several weeks.  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.

About this Blog

This integrated design studio will involve 11 M.Arch students working collaboratively to engage the current programme for the Hong Kong Performing Arts Academy and the Hong Kong Art Center, and research and design a major new initiative that serves as a counter-balance to the West Kowloon Cultural District institutions. There is an opportunity to diversify the geography of Hong Kong’s first tier arts venues while exploring questions of identity, civic presence, and architectural language.
