Dylan Kwok

Hong Kong-born Dylan Kwok grew up in Vancouver and studied at the University of Art and Design Helsinki for a Masters in spatial and furniture design. His thesis, AgriPuncture, blends agriculture with acupuncture to produce a new way of looking at the green movement and sustainability in the modern world — introducing bits of green throughout the city in the same way that acupuncture uses needles in various key points on the body. The project supports the idea that reinvigorating older areas of the cities can successfully take on a green theme, including introducing small green spaces into urban courtyards to promote a type of sustainable lifestyle, or using the south-facing walls of taller buildings as a type of vertical canvas on which to watch the art of life grow.
