What is the course about?

Exploring and enjoying the various architectural structures Hong Kong has to offer on numerous site visits, the course will develop an understanding of 20th century architecture in Hong Kong, with references to older periods and other cultural circles as well. It will thereby obviously consider the famous buildings of Hong Kong, but also pay particular attention to under-appreciated architecture of everyday nature, like the housing estate, the wet market, the industrial estate, the dai pai dong and others. GDCV1065 has a focus on architecture, but will also make connections to urban planning and feng shui practices.
