Jonathan Solomon and other architects conduct research on use of air-conditioning in Hong Kong

As part of a research project mapping 25 networks of interconnected, climate-controlled shopping malls, offices and MTR stations, Assistant Professor and Acting Head of the Department of Architecture Jonathan Solomon and architects Adam Frampton and Clara Wong discovered that air quality varies almost as much indoors as it does out on the street. Solomon and his colleagues exhibited their findings in an installation at the Venice Biennale and will release them next year in a book, Cities Without Ground. Their findings were also reported in the SCMP dated 3 October 2010.
