The University of Hong Kong’s Department of Architecture is proud to present for the first time in Hong Kong an exhibition on the city and its architecture.

“Archigram Meets Central” is a three-week exhibition showcasing imaginary visions for cities. Archigram’s Opus such as Walking City, Instant City, Oasis, Manzak…will confront the research projects and experimental investigations of some 400 students of the Department of Architecture, all concentrating on Central and the harbour front of Hong Kong.

A first-ever dialogue on the city through architecture is encouraged. The Generation Z questions The Sixties and suggest an alternative Pop Culture. Leading to discussions and debates with participation of the greater public where Central Hong Kong will be the common platform and site for engagement in an experimental summer design school.

Let us all discuss how architecture, urbanism, and landscape can facilitate and bring evolution and change to our environments.
