July 20 – August 8, 2020: Career Discovery in Architecture (Shanghai)

Career Discovery in Architecture (Shanghai) 建筑学职业探索课程(上海)

HKUSSC 香港大学上海学习中心 

The University of Hong Kong established the Shanghai Study Center in 2008. It is housed in the historic Post Office Building, on Suzhou Creek. The Study Centre acts as a platform for new urban development ideas to be emerged from the fastest urbanizing region in the world. The public program at HKUSSC invites critics with challenging opinions, architects with provoking viewpoints, planners with innovative solutions and academics with new theories – all with the aim of understanding the current condition in Chinese cities, and to explore beyond today and tomorrow. The goal is to be able to generate new ideas that can contribute to better, more intelligent and more interesting cities and architecture. The establishment of this Centre is also part of the University’s ongoing effort to achieve a global vision in tertiary education by extending its academic curricula, exchange and public programs beyond the physical confines of Hong Kong, thus giving students a more international learning experience; helping with the development of professional education for changing professional needs in a rapidly globalizing context.

香港大学上海学习中心于2008 年建立,坐落于苏州河畔的邮政博物馆办公楼内。香港大学上海学习中心致力于成为各种思想交汇的平台。中心的公共项目中汇聚了来自评论者的观点,来自建筑师的实践经验,来自规划者的大局策略,来自学者的创新理论,让学界和业界倾听声音,交流思想。我们希望能够激发更 多的新的思路,同公众一同认识更好、更智慧、更有趣的城市和建筑。香港大学上海学习中心的建立是香港大学为保持高等教育的全球视野的一个承诺。在这里,香港大学将教学、合作和公共项目从香港带入上海,从而为学生带来更国际化的学习经历,帮助他们培养快速全球化环境所需要的职业素质。

Program Description 课程介绍

The Career Discovery in Architecture Program has been offered by the Faculty of Architecture at The University of Hong Kong since 1998.  It introduces to high school students with general knowledge on the subject of architecture. The program has gained wide popularity in Hong Kong since its inception, and received critical acclaim when it was introduced in Shanghai in the summer of 2018. The program consists of a series of workshops, field trips, lectures and design studios, which are led by both HKU faculty members and experienced professionals (architects, landscape architects, engineers) practicing in Shanghai. Lectures will include aesthetics of architecture, urban environment, landscape design, historic preservation, building and environment technologies, computer-aided design etc.  Workshops are a series of training sessions on basic design and technical skills such as free-hand drawing, orthographic projections, perspectives, photography and model making etc. Design Studio forms an integral part of architectural education. The studio aims to raise students’ awareness of the hands-on and interactive nature in architectural training. A series of small design exercises is assigned to provide students with opportunities to apply the design skills and knowledge acquired during the course.

建筑学职业探索课程由香港大学建筑学院于1998年开始主办,该项目致力于向学生介绍建筑学基本知识体系,帮助高中生了解专业内容。多年来项目深受广大家长和学生欢迎,2018年夏天该项目入驻上海,备受好评。课程包含一系列工作坊、讲座、外出采风和设计任务,任课老师和客座教师均为香港大学教师及具有丰富实践经验的建筑师、景观建筑师、工程师等。 课程包括建筑美学、城市空间、景观设计、历史建筑保护、建成环境、计算机辅助设计等方面的讲座,工作坊部分包括手绘、正交投影、透视绘图、摄影及手工模型等方面的训练。设计课是建筑教育的最重要的部分,能让学生认识到建筑学训练中“动手”的本质。学生们将会在一系列小型设计练习中运用在课程中学到的设计技巧和知识。
