“Drawing Conversations with Nature” Exhibition @PMQ

This exhibition showcases the collective works by the HKU Bachelor of Arts in Architectural Studies Year 3 students in their Fall Design Studio in 2019 – 2021.

Our exploration begins with researching nature by drawing, analyzing, and unveiling the substrate that entails various coordinated disciplines speaking to one another in a natural phenomenon where vegetables and fruits grow as ordinary objects of study. Using architectural tools such as scale, plans, sections, dissections, transparency, and alternative languages, students may invent new tools, techniques, and methods for their drawing translations.

This exhibition will challenge the ways of seeing the world around us and discover new possibilities through a reading of representation and abstraction with depth and imagination.

We aim to develop a deeper understanding of forms, space, and material organization that describe the environment in terms of performance, structure, life cycle, and energy processing. Through these drawings, we will discover how nature grows and search for the relationship between architecture and our built environment.
