Design Trust Futures Studio is a cross-disciplinary initiative created and conceptualized by Marisa Yiu, Co-founder and Executive Director of Design Trust. Experts in field will focus on future thinking with outcomes that are impactful to society or public space relating to Hong Kong and the Greater Pearl River Delta Region where design can make a positive contribution.
The 2017 inaugural theme is “SMALL IS MEANINGFUL”, focusing on concepts of smallness and sharing, the phenomenon of micro-housing and the future of micro-parks. The exploration and research will involve housing and parks in Hong Kong, examining how space is utilised. The programme will culminate in a series of new prototype micro-parks for Hong Kong.
