Presented in parallel with the HKU Department of Architecture symposium, 2020:Housing China, this exhibition contains a collection of projects by local and international researchers, designers and architecture firms related to housing in Hong Kong, China and greater Asia. The work presented is a combination of academic research, actual built projects and speculative ideas for the future of housing in an increasingly dense and urbanized China. Projects exhibited are designed for an array of contexts from urban, to suburban, to rural and range in scope from single detached houses to urban scale developments. Projects explore a range of housing topics including the formulation of architecture around specific social issues, new construction methodologies, adaptive reuse of existing buildings, innovative connections to infrastructure, new opportunities provided by digital technology and the historical development of housing over recent decades. Overall, the exhibition seeks to re-frame the development of mass housing over the course of the twentieth century and offers important models for a new century of Chinese growth.
