BARRIE HO Architecture expands the ideas of incubation architecture with exhibitions at the Royal Institute of British Architects, London – and soon in Hong Kong

BARRIE HO Architecture was privileged to host an exhibition on the topic of incubation architecture on August 25 and 26 at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Headquarters, London, showcasing the firm's four built and ongoing projects in China and Hong Kong. Entitled Break Through the Walls – Incubation Architecture, it explored the architectural notion of incubation architecture, which itself is still a vague, immature and even paradoxical topic.

The four projects explored were
Qian Hai Creative Youth Entrepreneurship Dream Factory (The Dream Factory)
Chongqing Beijing Institute & Collaborative Innovation + Plug & Play Inno-Accelerator cum Academy for Xiantao Big Data Valley (BDV)
Chongqing Integrated E-Sports Stadium + Incubation + Training + Hotel-Development
Tuen Mun Yan Oi Tong Community Services Complex

The definition of incubation architecture evolves around the re-definition and re-introduction of 'space and place', with comprehensive supporting facilities and landscapes for younger generations to explore their creativity and innovative ideas on setting-up new businesses. This idea can be reflected in the recent architectural scene in Mainland China – the Qian Hai Creative Youth Entrepreneurship Dream Factory being the first accelerator incubation facility in the country.

The rapid development in China has created an 'experimental field' for architects to explore this new topic in the field of architecture. The Chongqing Big Data Valley adopts a quadrangle campus inspired by the traditional Chinese courtyard house and the Chongqing Integrated E-Sports Stadium, rides on the concept of an asymmetrical roof canopy designed to mimic a pair of wings and the expression of yin and yang, both a 'breakthrough' from the enclosed Chinese tradition.
