Hint

Innovative teaching spaces

Dr Susan Bridges SETL and her team on the (urgent) innovation re-design of Rooms 321 and 322 in the Run Run Shaw Building

I understand that this has been identified as a possible D+ student exercise

The students use it like a seminar room, flexible space, where you can write on the walls

Designed 5 years ago - not very popular at this stage

Education got a budget to rethink the budget

Could be a good student’s project

They want to strip out the electric

No capacity to put windows

Budget

11,000,000 HKD

Opportunity for D+ to do a “real project” in parallel of the project that’s really happening

  • 8,000,000 Architecture
  • 3,000,000 Electronics

Timeline

Construction over Christmas

The university wants to sell it as back to

Format

  1. Course: Too late
  2. Internship / workshop Charade: after the exams are done, could be good as a few days intensive workshop / brainstorming session
    1. Internship as student helpers, 65 HKD / hr or
    2. volunteer
