In architecture, “dimensions” is often used as a mathematical term to measure size or distance in space. Yet, in a broader sense, “dimensions” also implies diversity in perspective, aptly describing us as alumni of the School of Architecture at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.

To pursue individual passions with architectural knowledge as the core of our professional development, to push ourselves and challenge the norms of being an “architect” are what we have learned in our university education. In celebration of the Silver Jubilee of our School of Architecture this past year, we hope that this exhibition projects the “multiple dimensions” of our fellow alumni across two decades, unleashing interdisciplinary creativity on a dynamic spectrum, while advocating the different social roles as architects who aspire to imagine, innovate and impact.

破例 - 香港中文大學建築學院廿五周年校友展

在建築層面上,「例」有比例之意,是量度空間和距離的數學術語。然而,廣義來說,「例」也意味着規例、範例。「破例」這個展覽命題,正好代表了我們作為香港中文大學建築學院校友的勇於嘗試、破格創新。

大學教育讓我們學會以建築知識作為事業發展的基礎,同時追求個人熱忱,不斷提升自己並打破「建築師」的規範。適逢過去一年建築學院銀禧誌慶,我們策劃是次展覽,以反映中大建築跨越二十載的校友如何打破常規,將跨學科創意發揮到世界大舞台上,更提倡建築師所能扮演的不同社會角色,致力於想像、創新,最終引發迴響。

Exhibition Design

Amidst the hyper density in the heart of Hong Kong, the exhibition design for CUHK School of Architecture Alumni offers the Times Square Living Room Museum a momentary sense of depth and grandeur through the use of forced perspective. It has a 20 meter long exhibition space that appears to be triple the reality- it is a spatial experience through the gradual change of dimension and colors, together with the play of inclination of the central axis. Such play of scale was showcased in one of the best historical architecture example, Palazzo Spada, designed by Italian Architect Francesco Borromini.

The graphic design goes hand in hand with the spatial design through the manipulation of architectural scales and the multiplication of layers and lines; together with the tone of silver, celebrating the "Silver Anniversary" – the 25th anniversary of the School of Architecture at Chinese University of Hong Kong.

“Multiple Dimensions” is part of the CUHK School of Architecture 25th Anniversary celebrations.
With the theme of “IMAGINE.INNOVATE.IMPACT”, the year-long celebration programme aims to illustrate how architectural concepts can be transformed into creative designs that engage meaningfully with the world. More information is available at the School website: www.arch.cuhk.edu.hk.
