Mentoring Workshop: “draw TOGETHER @ THE BIG DRAW"
Venue:Very Hong Kong Pavilion

AIA Hong Kong - CES #356 - Feature


Seeing, perceiving, imagining and rendering. Architecture begins with observation, inspiration, a dot and a line to connect sketches and analyses that become future buildings and future cities. Volunteers from the AIA will join Draw Together @ The Big Draw Hong Kong to mentor and lead a drawing workshop at the Very Hong Kong pavilion for Hong Kong citizens to “draw the city” in an exploration of architectural seeing and sketching. This event is a collaboration with Very Hong Kong, Draw Together @ The Big Draw and the Community Art Network, working with the Cheung Chau Government School and the St. Stephens Society Youth Shelter. Draw Together @ The Big Draw Hong Kong 2013 is for everyone. It will focus on self expression and help to demonstrate the power of observation and drawing.* Both English and Cantonese-speaking volunteers are needed.

6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
CES #350: A Conversation with Criswell Davis, Dana Spessert and Vernacular School Designs by Project Little Dream
Venue:The American Club Hong Kong

The Presentation:

The evening will begin with a special presentation by a group of local architecture students working to build sustainable schools in Cambodia using wood, as part of Project Little Dream, winner of a 2013 AIA Hong Kong Citation.

Criswell and Dana will then share several case studies of projects using sustainable American hardwoods. These natural products have always been a popular choice for American and European architects and designers because of the wide variety of species available, and for their environmental credentials.  With the export of US hardwoods to Greater China (Hong Kong, Mainland China and Taiwan) expected to reach more than US$1 billion in 2013, and many more applications becoming apparent for both interior and building construction projects worldwide, the American Hardwood Export Council (AHEC) is hosting this seminar to educate architects and designers on the use of US hardwoods in sustainable design and to provide a practical demonstration of the lumber grading rules for North American hardwoods.
