First Projects Conversation Series: Kenan Liu | August 27, 2021
Description:

 

Dear Members

AIA Hong Kong is excited to continue our First Projects Series, conversations about “the construction of a practice” with talented young individuals who have initiated and maintained a career in architecture and design.

In this series, architects from Hong Kong, the US and the Asia-Pacific region reflect upon how their firm started – be it a first house, a lost competition, an unsolicited proposal, or a work on paper – and how that became the catalyst for the architectural adventures they are in now.

The next talk in the series is by Kenan Liu, co-founder of Atelier XUK.

Having received his education, and practiced, in both Switzerland and China, Kenan and his office now focus on the idea of construction in a contemporary context. For Atelier XUK, types of construction are not restricted to the production of spaces and objects, and the characteristics of a site are not simply about “borrowing or blocking” the current understanding of the here and now. Atelier XUK considers these two topics in relation to how daily lives are transformed in the process of urbanization – and the shared memories of people using these environments.

This speaker will focus on how Atelier XUK considers building activities in the context of the contemporary city.
