During his five-month term, Joseph Grima will examine the contemporary design eco-systems of Shenzhen and the Pearl River Delta. The team of Daniel Cooper and Juliana Kei will undertake a three-month fellowship with the topic being 76 Countries and One Administrative Zone: Hong Kong in World Expos, investigating Hong Kong’s representation on the international stage.
The 2016 programme expands the number of fellowships from one to two. M+/Design Trust Research Fellows are selected by a jury consisting of M+ and Design Trust representatives, based on the their topic and ability to contribute to bodies of knowledge relating to design and architecture in Hong Kong and the Peral River Delta Region.
