By engaging in “Agendas for the South” for the Fall 2018 public lecture series, University of Hong Kong’s Department of Architecture invites architects and scholars to align their work and ideas with unique positions related to their locale and design subjects. These architects are presenting projects grounded in the core of the discipline, offering new perspectives on the knowledge of architecture. Through the register of building and discursive positioning, the lectures present particular readings of the programs for architecture and the concept of the South, taking into account the nuanced and diverse sociocultural, geographical, and political contexts.
