Introduction

In an era where technological innovations are frequent, albeit less radical than in the last century, designers have responded with solutions that provide buoyancy and comfort in adapting to our continually shifting physical and virtual environments. They seek to enhance our sense of individual well-being, as well as promoting balance and harmony between people. Some focus on inspiring joy, fun, and beauty, while others help bring order and peace to our inner selves, and encourage the pursuit of personal passions and vitality. In conjunction, they experiment with non-conformity by pushing their boundaries through creative outlets and caring to fight for others.

The Annual Show opens the treasure boxes of young designers for you to read beyond the design outputs and discover the impact of the wide array of issues identified through research. Over 250 design projects with a wide spectrum of topics by students of our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are shown in an open-studio environment at the Jockey Club Innovation Tower. This year, a new navigation experience is introduced to bring you with new thoughts and insights on seven curated topics.

All members of the public are welcome. Free admission.

Organiser: The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design
