CUHK School of Architecture Presents 25th Master of Architecture Graduation Show

21 May 2021

The 25th Master of Architecture Graduation Show, organised by the School of Architecture of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK), will be held from 25 May to 30 May 2021 (phase 1), at Hong Kong Arts Centre, Wan Chai and from 4 June to 18 June 2021 (phase 2) at Lee Shau Kee Architecture Building at CUHK. Apart from celebrating the 25th graduating class of the CUHK Master of Architecture programme, this year’s Graduation Show presents to the public the leading professional education offered by the CUHK School of Architecture, and envisions future directions for architectural design.

The theme of the Graduation Show this year is “Resonance and Change”. It is a showcase for the collective attitudes in sixty architectural proposals, addressing pressing needs and embracing constant changes through architectural projects presented in the forms of design layouts and models. One group of students conducted an experimental study of the dining experience in the post-pandemic era to investigate the different possibilities for the space / room divider. Another student created a system of “small actions” adaptive design to offer multiple combinations of tools and furniture for residents of subdivided units. Please refer to the attachment for more details of selected graduation projects.
