Cantonese Opera as platform 


The design project is a series of spatial and architectural propositions that explores ways to shape alternative approaches to preserve and sustainably develop Cantonese Opera in Hong Kong. The current design direction advocates for a shift in the strategic focus from world-class cultural icons and institutions, to the envisioning of a versatile, networked, and collective spatial strategy.


The design project is an ongoing and iterative process of experimentation, revision, evaluation. It is informed by, argued for, and reflected upon with research.

Red Boats in the Floating City is a project at Cambridge Design Research Studio (CDRS), University of Cambridge.
