Dec 14 & 15 — Rethinking Pei: A Centenary Symposium seeks to reexamine Pei in the context of the architect’s 100th birthday year as two linked conferences organised by M+ with, respectively, the Graduate School of Design at Harvard University and the Faculty of Architecture at the University of Hong Kong.
Together, the events aim to resituate the architect from the intersecting vantage points of the two regional poles with which he’s most closely linked—Hong Kong/China and Boston/the United States—by bringing together architectural historians and practitioners, among others, to discuss new strands of inquiry concerning Pei and his work. The second part of the symposium will be held on Dec 14 and 15 (Thur and Fri) at the University of Hong Kong.
Date/Time: 14-Dec-2017, 10:00am-6:00pm; 15-Dec-2017, 10:00am-1:00pm
Venue: Room 419, Knowles Building, Pokfulam Road, The University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Free admission. Registration is not required; first come, first served.
