GREATER BAY AREAex MASTER STUDIO 2020

The Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Design, in collaboration with the Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment - TU Delft, commences the second round on strategizing the Greater Bay Area (GBA)

The Greater Bay Areaex Masters Class 2020 will reformulate strategies and critical interventions, pertinent to the development of the GBA. As before, the methodological approach aims to maximise strategic potentials, reconsidering the disciplines of spatial planning and territorial design.

This builds on the existing work completed in 2019, expanding on mega-regions linked to urban-agglomerations. The concepts of systems and strategies, emphasises planning principles through specific planning models. Each model explores speculative frameworks that challenge conventional planning practices, raising critical debates in terms of scales of development, settlement morphologies and economic characteristics within the region.

The Master Class design studio is supplemented with lectures and seminars, shared between PolyU and TU Delft faculty and PhD candidates.
