46,060 visit From The House To The City
Over two weeks, over 40,000 people visited the Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners: From the House to the City Exhibition in Hong Kong’s ifc mall.
The exhibition, which closed on Sunday 8 July, covered forty years of the practice’s work, organising projects into colour coded themes of ‘Early Work’, ‘Transparent’, ‘Lightweight’, ‘Legible, Green’, ‘Public, Systems’, ‘Urban’ and ‘Work-in-Progress’.
Alongside the exhibition, a full education programme was running, including a daily tour of the exhibition for local school children and the general public, a lecture by Ivan Harbour and Richard Rogers at the British Council and four family workshops for children aged 5 to 10 years old. It was the first time the venue had ever held workshops for the public within the mall.
Chu Chai, Design and Technology Teacher from HKICC School of Creativity said after his class’ visit: "This exhibition inspired my students to broaden their thinking on how the process of design evolves and the use of technology in the process. The exhibition is interesting and the students found the colour and multimedia very engaging."
A student stated: "This exhibition makes me want to be an architect"
