Team: Hugo Si Ieong Ng (MUD’17), Yuling Yang (MUD’17), Xiangyu Zhang (MArch)
Three Faculty of Architecture students YANG Yuling (MUD 16-17), NG Si Ieong (MUD 16-17), and ZHANG Xiangyu (MArch2 17-18) won an honourable mention in the first ever Urban Land Institute’s Hong Kong Urban Innovation Ideas competition, a real estate development case competition for young professionals. The competition was supported by Swire Properties, RIBA HK, RICS, AIA HK. This competition sought innovative design, business and financial proposals that generated fresh ideas for the sites in the Star Street neighbourhood. They came third in the field of 18, and were beaten by teams from Arup and Swire, so we think our students did exceptionally well on their own. The Honourable team was advised by Kurt Evans (DoA) and Alain Chiaradia (DUPAD).
