- 14 Mar 2014 (Fri)
(HONG KONG, 14 March 2014) HKU SPACE’s part-time Architectural Studies students hold an exhibition named “Pencil Fantasia: An Exhibition of Visions illustrated by Primitive Pencils”. With pencils in their hands, the students meticulously capture the birds’ movement in the countryside and the people’s lifestyle in Temple Street, Kowloon. The selection of a modern gallery in Sham Shui Po, a melting pot of the old and new cultures in Hong Kong, also symbolizes their passion for architecture and art.
Architecture and art entangle with one another. Apart from the precise calculation of mechanics, architecture also places strong emphasis on the pursuit of elegance and beauty. With the rapid development of drawing and shooting technologies, we are losing the joy of hand drawing. Despite their daytime occupations, the 22 students from the Professional Diploma in Architectural Studies are stretching their potential with pencils and expressing their enthusiasm for architectural art.
The students also choose to display their collections at a gallery named “100 ft. PARK” in Sham Shui Po, where the venue truly reflects their concern for urban development.
Date: 16 – 30 March 2014
Time: 2:30pm – 8:00pm
Venue: 100ft PARK, 135 Lai Chi Kok Road, Kowloon, Hong Kong (near Exit C, Prince Edward MTR Station)
