HK Lab

Description

If many architects and urban planners envisage Hong Kong as a potential exemplar for the creation of future urban models--not just in China but internationally--it is because its unique geographic, economic and cultural status make it an intriguing site for experimentation. In HK Lab, an array of scholars from the fields of design, visual culture, business management, architecture, urban planning, art history and semiotics focus on the singular conditions--geographic, historic, political, economic, social and cultural--that have produced the ever-expanding network of influences of which Hong Kong is composed.
