Join the British Council for an unmissable opportunity to hear from internationally renowned UK designer Paul Cocksedge. His spectacularly inventive yet simple style is expressed in everything from product design to architectural projects and public art pieces, which he has created for clients including the V&A, Sony, Swarovski and many more.
Cocksedge will discuss how his work crosses the boundaries between design, art and science, and offer insight into his own process. He will also be exploring why creativity of all kinds is key for cities like Hong Kong and London - where his studio is based.
The talk will be moderated by Eric Schuldenfrei, Head of Department of Architecture, HKU.
