For the past 3 years, I have been very fortunate to run this Master of Architecture elective on the project I am most excited about “Floating Marine Laboratory”.
- The first year (2019-2020) the students all worked together to build 1 full size fish farm with reclaimed materials >> The format was “All students work on one big project”"Floating Marine Laboratory" 2019-2020, ARCH7382A
- The second-year (2020-2021) the students build a marine biology lab equipment to grow oyster larvae, namely an upwelling and downwelling system and a downwelling system >> The format was “The students break into 2 groups and make two medium projects”"Floating Marine Laboratory" 2020-2021, ARCH7382A
- and this third year (2021-2022) the students each came up with their own idea of what could be done to contribute best to restoring oyster population and rejuvenate the oyster farming industry in Hong Kong >> The format this year is “each student work on their own idea”"Floating Marine Laboratory 2022" ARCH7382, HKU MArch
Of course, I am biased, but every year I feel we’re learning a lot in very different ways, building on what the previous years have built. So I invite you to check out their awesome projects here:
Thanks to the students for their hard works, and also the experts that have given us their time, and the judges that helped us to evaluate the works!
