The 21st Master of Architecture Graduation Show organized by the School of Architecture of The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) will be held from 19 May to 28 May, at Exchange Square, Central.  Dr. Edward Yiu, Legislative Councillor (Architectural, Surveying, Planning and Landscape Functional Constituency), renowned architect and artist Mr. Raymond Fung, as well as other guests of honour from leading architecture firms will officiate at the opening ceremony on 19 May (Friday).  The second phase of the Exhibition will take place at the AIT Building on CUHK campus from 5 June to 16 June, while selected projects will also be displayed at Times Square, Causeway Bay, from 9 June to 18 June.

Apart from celebrating the 21st graduating class of the CUHK Master of Architecture programme, this year’s Graduation Show also presents to the public the professional education offered by the CUHK School of Architecture and potential directions of architecture.  In the exhibition, more than 50 individual thesis projects draw inspiration from a wide variety of topics, including housing, conservation, city planning, traditional construction, parametric design, education and community transformation.  All the exhibited drawings, diagrams and models aim to communicate critical positions in response to some of the pressing issues of society today, both in Hong Kong and in the world.
