Event description
HKU Architecture Gallery presents "Alternative Materials" Exhibition @PMQ. The exhibition opens daily from 10am to 8pm. All are welcome.

About this event

Environmental issues are becoming increasingly alarming in the current climate. The exhibition documents the experimental endeavours of Year 3 students from the BASc (Design+) Studio at the University of Hong Kong in Fall 2021. The studio emphasizes the use of novel materials that have not been widely used in the construction and manufacturing industries, striving to provide new opportunities to the field.

The exploration begins with researching materials and techniques to identify a potential arena that may yield tangible outcomes. Next, students engage in a deeper understanding of the chosen materials to demonstrate their full potential, including organic, plant-based, recycled, recyclable, waste generated, composite, biodegradable, circular, and low footprint.

In response to climate change and the overconsumption of plastics and concrete, the exhibition features students' explorations as future leaders through hands-on prototyping. By considering environmental, social, and cultural contexts, the collection addresses sustainability in design, to reflect how we exploit resources, manufacture goods and consume products, and seeking to use alternative materials.

在全球暖化下,環境議題變得越來越迫切。是次展覽展出了香港大學文理學士(設計+)三年級學生於2021年秋季工作室的探索成果丶研究和設計作品。作品啟發自尚未廣泛應用於建築及製造行業的嶄新物料,學生希望透過作品向大眾呈現使用另類物料的可能性。

學術探討從研究物料和技術開始,以確定可以取得實際成果的潛在領域。隨後學生會對所選物料進行深入探討,以充分發揮物料的潛能,包括有機材料、植物材料、可回收材料、可再造材料丶廢物產生材料、複合材料、生物可降解材料丶循環材料及低碳足跡材料。

學生的設計作品包含了對未來的期許,他們希望透過作品喚起大眾對氣候暖化、過度消耗塑料及混凝土的關注。基於對環境丶社會和文化的考慮,作品提出了可持續設計理念,引導我們反思日常的資源利用、商品製造及消費模式,並探求使用另類物料的可能性。
