Zine + Architecture – a collection of ideas in writing and design exhibits a selection of zines, or self-produced architectural magazines, featuring a diverse range of discursive positions on architecture produced by M.Arch Y1 students in the Department of Architecture at HKU. The variety of ideas, practices, and polemics offered through these objects span different eras in architecture and touch upon numerous cultural, territorial, and technical matters. Collectively, these zines capture a spectrum of our students’ thoughts concerning the state of contemporary design practice. More generally, this work speaks to the zine’s significance as a medium through which designers can question and push the disciplinary boundaries of architecture in new theoretical and global directions.

The specific self-publishing medium of the zine has active roots in both architecture and Hong Kong, making it the perfect vessel through which diverse, interactive, and design-oriented perspectives can be introduced and displayed to Hong Kong’s public.

These zines reveal the creative visual and textual modes of expression and exchange at the core of our M.Arch design program, and in connection to architecture’s fundamental relationship to writing and graphic design. They also offer a vital and exciting means to further diversify and challenge architectural discourse—and the discipline at large—at a time of uncertainty.
