About Urban Futures: People · Communications · Architecture
In 2020, as part of HKDI’s “Global Design Studio” scheme, HKDI joined hands with Ravensbourne University London (Ravensbourne) on an international collaborative student project known as Urban Futures: People · Communications · Architecture. In this exchange project, students explored how complex issues of urban change could be made tangible through cross-continental exchange of research and studio practice, disciplines between the Communication Design and Architectural Design disciplines.
Both Hong Kong and UK students worked on the same brief but two different gentrified locations: taking an area of 350 x 350 metres in Sham Shui Po district of Hong Kong and Hackney Wick area of London, exploring its interaction between people, communications and architecture, and developing solutions on how the verbal, graphic, and architectural languages interact to create narratives about people’s ways of life.

Sham Shui Po
Sham Shui Po is one of the most dynamic and eclectic districts in Hong Kong facing potential redevelopment and gentrification problems. How might we evaluate and respond and provide a haven for the locals of Hong Kong while propelling into the future? 14 students from HKDI underwent a series of in depth mapping exercises and consequently propose an intervention of a small artist village for the locals of Hong Kong.

Hackney Wick situated within the London Borough of Hackney, Hackney Wick has an industrial past dating back to the 19th and early 20th centuries. It was once characterised by large scale factory yards and wharves sitting alongside residential terraces within a distinctive urban grain, and still enjoys the highest concentration of artist studios in Europe. It is bounded by infrastructure such as roads, railways, waterways and greenways which forms its insular character.

Sustaining Identities - Producing Nature (PDF)
Sustaining Identities - Crafting Communities (PDF)
Cities worldwide of different cultural backgrounds face similar issues – dealing with aging districts, over population, climate change and gentrification. How can communities be engaged and be benefitted in order to sustain. What are the means of social engagement through design, to identify and tackle the problems in urbanity? Watch our symposium hosted by academics from HKDI and the University of Lincoln in UK.
