Event description
HKU Architecture Gallery presents "House Tales" exhibition @PMQ. The opening event will be held on 7 June 2021 (workshops to be announced).

About this event

By bringing together two worlds – the contemporary one and the vernacular, the process of design looks both backwards and forwards, and the role of the architect is questioned. In the context of Hong Kong and Mainland China, the rural way of living is heavily influenced not just by ancestral knowledge of building, but also by cultural tendencies, such as multigenerational households, which leads to contrasting lifestyles brought together.

The question that rose from trying to understand the contemporary postures of rural living was a simple one: what defines a home, and how do we explore the relationship between design and the conditions of living. Therefore, how can one design a house which responds to shaping the qualities and functions of domestic living?

Through this analysis, it becomes natural to notice the beginning of a new design approach for rural households, which combines state-of-the-art techniques with vernacular craftsmanship, in a new functional dynamic, which is neither rural nor urban, neither contemporary nor traditional – but that captures the best of both worlds, signifying a novel approach towards a sustainable living.

--------

當傳統和現代匯集,當設計同時面向過去和未來,建築師扮演的角色需要被重新審視。在香港和中國大陸的語境下,農村生活不僅受到祖傳建築知識的約束,同時受到多代同堂等各種文化的影響,從而演變成許多截然不同的生活方式。

在試圖理解現代農村生活的過程裡,我們提出的問題簡單又基本:如何定義一個家?如何探討設計與生活之間的關係?以及如何從塑造居家生活品質和功能出發進行房屋設計?

通過分析,我們不難發現農村生活已開始融合新的設計理念,結合現代化的技術與傳統的工藝技巧。在這種新的動態中,它既非鄉村也非城市,不屬於當代也不歸於傳統;它取各家之長,標榜了嶄新的可持續生活方式。
