This credit-bearing HKU course was established in 2010 to focus on urgent architectural and urban issues confronting Asian cities today. It is an immersive course designed to expose students to daily learning activities including lectures, seminars, studio crits, field work, firm visits, and design reviews. The nature of work ranges from critical reading of texts, individual assignments, to design and research collaborations. Students will get to interact with professors, researchers, critical practices, think tanks and various local stakeholders in the making of Shanghai and Tokyo. This program welcomes all university students and recent graduates with an interest in the Asian city. The deadline for enrolment has been extended to May 20, 2018.
