14:00-18:00 | [BASc(Design+)] Design Futures Workshop by Dr Kristof Crolla (Programme Director), Cesar Jung-Harada (Senior Lecturer) and more | Venue: KB622
Where are the flying cars? Free energy? Holidays on the moon? The promised future is always postponed, and with an ongoing climate catastrophe, the future we used to want may not make sense anymore. So, what future should we desire and design instead? For half a day you will be designing the future mentored by design experts in the fields of computational architecture, industrial design, fashion and textile, furniture, mixed reality, new materials, and ocean robotics.
Every year our Department publishes a Prospectus that encapsulates our very unique culture and documents the work produced at HKU. The Prospectus showcases the social values, aspirations, and thinking that will change the world around us. We hope that you might be able to share the Prospectus with any students who have an interest in our architecture programme [BA(AS)] or arts and sciences programme in design [BASc (Design+)].
The Prospectus is available here: www.arch.hku.hk/prospectus
We look forward to seeing you soon!
