Design Trust x Spring
Futures Studio Public Review
Design Trust Futures Studio is a cross-disciplinary initiative conceptualized by Marisa Yiu, Co-founder and Executive Director of Design Trust. The 2017 inaugural theme is “SMALL IS MEANINGFUL”, focusing on concepts of smallness and sharing, the phenomenon of micro-housing and the future of micro-parks. The exploration and research will involve housing and parks in Hong Kong, examining how space is utilised. The programme will culminate in a series of new prototype micro-parks for Hong Kong at an exhibition in October.
Presented as part of the first-ever Storefront International Series: Hong Kong, the Design Trust Futures Studio Ideas Public Review on 8th July 2017, the Designer Mentees will present their conceptual ideas for future micro parks, and share their definitions of “smallness” and their manifestos on the topic of “scale”. This will be followed by a discussion with invited guest critics on the conceptual schemes.
