建造業是香港經濟的主要支柱。在過去幾十年,香港的基礎建設、房屋建設及市區重建都有長足的發展;同時,也可預見未來建造業會繼續興旺。根據2006年的統計數字顯示,僅建造業一環便已佔了8%的總就業人數,這數字還不包括其他與建築學相關的設計及房地產業從業員。

中國成為世界貿易組織(WTO)成員國、加上中港落實「更緊密經貿關係的安排」(CEPA),均為有志於從事建築行業的人士,開拓更多的就業機會。中國的建設環境今後將快速增長,這個絕對不容忽視的優勢,令建築學畢業生不僅可於香港工作,也可到內地各大城市一展所長,就業前景非常樂觀。

After my unsatisfactory JUPAS result, I was worried about the future. With a lack of practical knowledge, skills and work experience, it was a very tough period for me and I began to think about what my talents were. I was frustrated but I knew that design was one of my major interests, which includes architecture, interior design, urban design and product design. However, I found that I was drawn more toward architecture as it can provide me with a broader thinking and learning base.

I spent 5 years studying architecture, first in the Professional Diploma in Architectural Studies at HKU SPACE CC, then the Bachelor’s degree in Applied Science in Architectural Science, a joint collaboration between HKU SPACE and Curtin University in Australia. HKU SPACE CC gave me a very good platform to learn, to examine and to discover. Both programmes guided me to explore what design is and taught me how to design. There is no regret of my decision to study at HKU SPACE CC; in fact, I feel proud of it. I understand that post-secondary studying is a self-motivated learning process, especially in architecture; it is a kind of spiritual and self-determined learning.

The Professional Diploma in Architectural Studies at HKU SPACE CC was a very well-structured architectural programme which offered me all-rounded training and a solid foundation. They offered training through building design projects, group presentations and discussions with design lecturers, as well as complementary courses in both practical and technical knowledge. It helped me develop the right attitude to study, enabled me to further pursue my study for a Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture at The University of Hong Kong, and aided in my career advancement.

Performing well and receiving good results during my studies in HKU SPACE CC allowed me to pursue other interests like landscape architecture, a field that has a very high potential to develop into my career. Upon graduation from the Master’s degree in Landscape Architecture, I began my practical training at a landscape architecture firm. Working there for 2 years, I found that the variety of project types is large and more interesting. After my promotion to Senior Landscape Designer at my current company, I need to handle both project management and design; it is challenging and exciting for me every day.

I hope that my sharing could inspire you. Hard work may not lead you to succeed, but it is the only way to help you create opportunities. HKU SPACE CC provides excellent opportunities for those who want to develop a new brilliant career path in the future.

What is architecture?

This was the first question asked of me during me first lesson in the Professional Diploma in Architectural Studies (PDAS), I responded with "pretty buildings".

Upon my completion of the HKALE, I studied in PDAS for two years, and learnt that architecture is not simply good-looking buildings. The core design studio allowed me to develop my ideas and to consolidate them into architecture. Tutors in the course encouraged me to explore all kinds of possibilities which were beneficial to my study as well as my future career and throughout my life.

On the other hand, what I learned in the programme is not based purely on imagination. Practical courses on Building Structure and Building Construction gave me a clear understanding of construction methods. The Architectural History course allowed me to understand the importance of historical, social, political and economic influences on architecture. The Building Laws and Regulations course was taught so that I understood the process and limits of actual practice. All these courses formed a powerful foundation to support my design development.

As most of our lecturers and tutors are practising architects, they gave me the benefit of their practical experience and provided much guidance in relation to my studies and future career path.

In addition to the regular courses, field trips and academic exchanges also broadened my horizons. I was exposed to different cultures apart from those visible in Hong Kong. All these extracurricular activities provided valuable opportunities for my learning.

The most valuable lesson I have obtained from the course is actually "how to learn", which I believe is essential for lifelong improvement.

I am now pursuing a Bachelor of Applied Science degree (Architectural Science) at Curtin University. All the knowledge I acquired in PDAS has been invaluable to my tertiary studies in architecture and fuelled my passion for the field, even more strongly.
