Design Dialogue: Architectural Activism between heritage and innovation: HK and beyond
On 27th March 2019, we held a Design Dialogue moderated by Marisa Yiu (Co-founder / Executive Director, Design Trust) and responded by Aric Chen (Curatorial Director, Design Miami). Sharing on heritage/ identity related projects by Puay-peng Ho (Professor Head of Department,

The panel is in partnership with DESIGN TRUST, a Hong Kong based Design NGO and brings together designers, architects, artists, preservationists and curators to have a conversation around heritage buildings, urban transformation and critical art making in Hong Kong, Greater Bay Area and beyond. With accelerating urbanisation -how can we agitate and provoke new ideas in learning from the past -such as heritage craft to architectural innovation- in the context of Hong Kong and the contemporary city.
