The Career Discovery in Architecture Programme has been offered by the Faculty of Architecture at The University of Hong Kong since 1998. It introduces to high school students with general knowledge on the subject of architecture. The programme has gained wide popularity in Hong Kong since its inception, and received critical acclaim when it was introduced in Shanghai in the summer of 2018. The programme consists of a series of workshops, field trips, lectures and design studios, which are led by both HKU faculty members and experienced professionals (architects, landscape architects, engineers) practicing in Shanghai.
Lectures will include aesthetics of architecture, urban environment, landscape design, historic preservation, building and environment technologies, computer-aided design etc. Workshops are a series of training sessions on basic design and technical skills such as free-hand drawing, orthographic projections, perspectives, photography and model making etc.
Design Studio forms an integral part of architectural education. The studio aims to raise students’ awareness of the hands-on and interactive nature in architectural training. A series of small design exercises is assigned to provide students with opportunities to apply the design skills and knowledge acquired during the course.
