A HOUSE A HOME I: MODERN TRADITION

HKU FALL 2019 DESIGN STUDIO


Studio Folio

This year is devoted to looking at the house – firstly through an analysis of modernist architectural works, followed by design exercises which propose to renovate the house in response to some of the most urgent and pressing issues we face today. Beyond the skills and knowledge required for these projects, the year will be a contemplation on the role of the architect in society – our social contract. On one hand, we will be rigorously analyzing the house, dissecting the house and framing architectural arguments strictly through the language of architecture itself (plans, sections, models, details, construction). On the other hand, we will also conduct a series of seminars to explore the house from cultural, philosophical, social perspectives. Through the design of the house, we are anticipating the home.
