Title:
“Beyond What We See – First year students interpreting the city” Exhibition @ PMQ

Beyond What We See exhibits students’ investigations and theorisation about two kinds of observations as they explore the streets of Hong Kong. The exhibition juxtaposes healthy city science curves with students’ mind maps that explore links between the built environment and health, while setting a single theoretical economic curve against students’ discoveries of ‘Thomassons’, a quirky name given to the often quirky relics of urban obsolescence found in all cities.
