PMQ and Urban Environment Design Magazine present 10×100 Exhibition – Hong Kong Edition, a show representing the best of the region’s architecture from the past 10 years

Running from 17 February to 5 March, 10×100 Exhibition – Hong Kong Edition has brought together 100 well-known architectural projects of the past 10 years, 50 from Hong Kong and 50 from Mainland China. Following an open call for participants, the exhibition offers a fascinating reflection on cities and their architecture by many architects, from Mainland China’s rapid urbanisation schemes to Hong Kong’s creative solutions to lack of space, and is funded by Create Hong Kong.

A range of projects in areas such as urban design, planning design, architectural design, landscape design, and interior design will be on show, targeting architects, urban planners, developers, government officials as well as the general public. Works by both well-established practitioners and emerging architects will be on show in the exhibition that has been curated by Gao Yan and Thomas Tsang.

Mr Gao Yan, one of the curators of the exhibition said, "The 100 projects being exhibited, 50 from Mainland China and 50 from Hong Kong, are designed to foster a collective dialogue between architects from the Mainland and Hong Kong, between members of the architectural disciplines and the general public, and between architectural professionals and academia. By putting the entire spectrum of architecture in the spotlight, we hope that more and more citizens will recognise the importance of architecture in our collective life."

Hong Kong works include the St. Andrew's Church Life Centre and the M+ Pavilion in the West Kowloon Cultural District. Featured projects from Mainland China include the Tea House in Hutong, Beijing, and the Vanke Pavilion designed for the Shanghai Expo 2010.

One of the highlights of the exhibition is its innovative presentation. Designed by the curators, ladders of various heights display detailed information about the 100 projects. Some projects are accompanied by the original design models as well, enabling visitors to compare differences between the initial concept and the final product. At the same time, the ladders themselves create an amusing architectural landscape for visitors.

In addition, a group of local and overseas guests and architects will be invited to PMQ for a series of forums. Among the significant speakers are Dr Ronald Lu, Mr Ken Wai, Mr Roan Ching Yueh and Professor Wong Weijen (The University of Hong Kong). The forums will offer opportunities for architectural professionals to reflect on the past and share their expectations for the future of the industry.
