Fresh Graduate of Environment and Interior Design shines on local and international stages

Congratulations to our Environment and Interior Design fresh graduate, Fong Yam Wing Winston on winning the Landscape Category of 2021 LOOP Design Awards! Winston’s project, ‘Reimagine the Forgotten Dynasty’ is the only concept design and the only student work in this category, which was chosen by an international jury. The work was created under the supervision of Anneli Giencke, Instructor of PolyU Design.

In ‘Reimagine the Forgotten Dynasty’, the projective geometry of Chinese paintings was studied and transformed into plan view. By manipulating the boundaries between exterior and interior, between public and private, between natural and man-made, different configurations are generated in plan view as well as transforming it back into the Chinese painting frame of reference creating different compositions resulting in a change of narrative. 

The LOOP Design Awards launched the second edition of its prize in March 2021. It is an open platform to creativity and talent, where all the participants may showcase their best works, giving them great visibility around the world. 

Recognition to Winston’s talent did not stop there. Winston is winner of SDAAL Jane Li Scholarship 2021, and he also won the 2nd Runner Up Prize in the Building Information Modelling (BIM) Competition 2021 with his teammates from Chu Hai College of Higher Education. The team, named ‘Team Assorted’ was challenged to use BIM software to calculate wind direction and sun emission to design a sustainable building for social and art programmes. Their outstanding performance has brought them the prize. Click here to learn about Team Assorted’s Work.
