Hong Kong Design Institute


During our stay in Hong Kong, we continued our photographic project questioning living spaces of Hong Kong people. We interviewed local people on their ways of living in the various neighbourhoods of Hong Kong and the people were photographed in their own environment under the "It's better here" theme. For this, we worked with 10 students and Raymond Yau from Design Foundation Studies. Local issues specific to Hong Kong were highlighted and questioned. This workshop was organised thanks to Hong Kong Design Institute from 2 to 6 December 2013. At the end of the workshop, everybody was so enthusiastic with the results than a publication is planned for February 2014.
