A Feature Grant, Funded by Design Trust (an Initiative of Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design)
Traveling Architectures (2016-2017) used participatory design and performance methods in order to create transportable performance installations adaptable to diverse community sites. Pai dongs (hawkers’ stalls) serve as the central figure around which the other examples of everyday design culture such as lighting, textiles, and cinema, can be arranged. Traveling architectural forms—inspired by the pai dongs and developed through the design research laboratory, workshops, and public showing—reflect the histories of design cultures and its impact on Hong Kong livelihoods at an “everyday” level in different neighbourhoods.
