The University of Hong Kong – Faculty of Architecture is pleased to announce that registration for this year’s Cities in Asia Summer Programme is now open. The credit-bearing HKU course was established in 2010 to focus on urgent architectural and urban issues confronting Asian cities today. This year, the studio will be traveling to Jakarta and Taipei. The collaborating partners are Rujak Center for Urban Studies (Jakarta) and Shih Chien University (Taipei).
The programme is an immersive course designed to expose students to these cities through daily learning activities including lectures, seminars, studio crits, field work, firm visits, and design reviews. The nature of work ranges from critical reading of texts and individual assignments, to design and research collaborations. Students will get to interact with professors, researchers, critical practices, think tanks and various local stakeholders, as well as with students from other universities.
The programme welcomes all undergraduate and graduate students, and recent graduates in the disciplines of architecture, landscape, urban design, urban planning and policy, urban studies and all allied design and engineering fields. Liberal arts students with a relevant major or minor are also eligible.
The deadline for enrollment is April 17, 2020.
