Co-organiser / Name of Participant(s)
John Zhang and Siyun Tang
Double Take is a 3-day event which examines the pervasive practice of architectural mimicry in the residential real estate sector in contemporary China. The event will explore how this phenomenon shapes the meaning of the home, and its impact on the formation of architectural identities from Mainland China to Hong Kong and the wider Chinese diaspora. Day One will run as a workshop with students from Hong Kong Design Institute, who will produce a range of filmic works that responds to a specific site in Hong Kong where overlapping architectural styles and motifs from both eastern and western traditions belies the rich and complex architectural identity of the city.
