HKU Architecture Papers PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

HKU Architecture Papers free pdf Initiated and edited by a group of architecture students at the University of Hong Kong, HOUR 25 creates a platform for architectural discourse through highlights of the year's best student works, critical essays from staff, reviews of programming, and a chronicle of the Department of Architecture. The 25th hour is a critical moment for architects: the space beyond the daily routine of 24 hours. It also exemplifies the struggle of architecture students: lack of sleep due to endless studio work. 24 hours a day is simply not sufficient. In response to overwhelming media saturation in the architectural field, which tends to pursue fashionable images but often suffers from a poverty of content, The HKU Architecture Yearbook actively engages the readers' critical thinking towards the built environment locally and globally. Supported by the Department of Architecture but initiated and edited by students, the Yearbook is an authentic production of the next generation of leaders in the field, and a valuable commentary to a year of vigorous engagement in architectural discourse.
