In partnership with the School of Creative Media at City University of Hong Kong, the Architectural Association (AA) will be launching the first AA Visiting School programme in the territory
Titled Post-Industrial Landscapes 3.0, the AA Visiting School workshops — organised by the Architectural Association with the School of Creative Media, City University of Hong Kong — will be held between the 20-30 July, at the premises of the Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre.
Bringing together 20-25 students from various architecture and media design backgrounds, participants will be designing space as an interface laboratory — connecting the urban fabric of multiple agents to become a place between the networks and the city. Software such as processing and game engines, 3D projection mapping and 3D printing technologies will create a new architectural interface.
Orchestrated by a handful of the notable industry experts in their respective fields, the workshop will be run by: Tobias Klein (architect and new media artist, SCM), Tomas Laurenzo (computer scientist and new media artist, SCM), Ramon van der Hejiden (remote sensing, Front Façades) and Victor Leung (robotics specialist, HKU).
In addition, Post-Industrial Landscapes 3.0 will be hosting a lecture series, featuring an international selection of key speakers, including Tom Verbes, Kristof Crolla, Per-Johan Dahl, Fredrik Hellberg and Mond Qu. The final review takes place on 30 July, while the exhibition runs from 1-2 August at the Run Run Shaw Creative Media Centre and will be open to the public.
Commenting on the workshop, programme director Tobias Klein describes the workshop series as, "Challenging the conventional methods of architecture and design by introducing cross-disciplinary workshops results in a new generation of trained architects and designers who no longer perceive their profession as an isolated discipline."
