Make Room: Afterlives of Thesis
HKU Architecture Papers Vol.3
Make Room is a platform for new and extended works based on theses generated during the academic year of 2013 at the Department of Architecture, HKU. It disseminates the agendas that motivate many of the projects in the department to the broader public and instigate events that engage ideologies with everyday practice. The book is designed as a toolkit of ready-made materials, including manifestos, postcards, posters, and a board game, allowing for all kinds of actions and adaptation.
Being the first collaborative project by the 2013 graduates of the MArch program at HKU, Make Room demonstrates that one can participate in urgent architectural discourses and contribute to society with passion, repertoire, and intelligence to substantially initiate change.
