    Between April and June, more than 300 student participants in the Hang Lung Young Architect Program have been actively engaged in the Tour Design Competition as docents, introducing and describing the features of the architectural tours that they have designed to a panel of judges. The judges have been given a delightful surprise as students surpassed themselves in using creative means such as electronic games, pop-up architectural plans, and pamphlets, among other aids, to demonstrate the knowledge and experience they have gained from the Program in the journeys they curated through Hong Kong’s architectural wonders.

     

    Senior Manager – Cost & Controls Eugene Chang, an architect at Hang Lung and member of the competition's judging panel said, "I'm glad that participating students can put their newly acquired knowledge into practice. Their keen eye for detail is impressive as has been their ability to find hidden gems within the urban landscape."

     

    After the competition, participating students will share their experience and passion for architecture with fellow schoolmates. The results of the competition will then be announced at the Graduation Ceremony to be held in mid-July. The winning teams will have the opportunity to take part in an overseas architectural study tour led by architects during the summer.
