9789881521859: Kowloon Cultural District: An Investigation into Spatial Capabilities in Hong Kong

This book declares the existing Kowloon as a "cultural district" already in formation, constituting a parallel proposal to Hong Kong's West Kowloon Cultural District project. In a three-fold approach comprised of the Cabinet of Curiosities, Archives, and Retrievals, it documents indigenous practices and spaces, reformulates them through architectural proposals, and links them to a broader context through reflection in essays.

He is an internationally recognized scholar whose research is focused on understanding emergent conditions in Chinese cities by contextualizing them in traditional discourses of modernity and architecture in their Western and Asian manifestations. He received his BA from Tsinghua University in Beijing and his PhD from the AA School of Architecture and Birkbeck College, University of London. He practiced in Hong Kong from 1995 to 2000, and was co-founder and consultant of BHSL Design from 2002 to 2007.
