梁子維 Jeff Leung – 「密」謀 “1 Country, 2 Density”
A sharing session of personal practice as a design architect involving Hong Kong and Mainland China projects which significantly differentiate each other through sustainable city planning & living style and how as an architect can mutually adopt the “density strategy” positiveness of two places, which echo with the experimental exploration of vertical tower design in the Venice Biennale Exhibition 2018.
楊卉 Bella Yang – 建築師的理想國 Architect’s “The Republic”
With interpretation of an individual human’s spatial cognition under varying spaces from small scale to one building, city or even natural landscape, an Architect organizes functions and at the same time builds up space which can arouse emotional connectivity of the public. In the perspective of the unique city context of Hong Kong, the speaker shares how she delivered such ideas into a vertical tower design for Venice Biennale Exhibition 2018.
