Condition_Lab is a Design Research Laboratory based within the School of Architecture at CUHK. Established in 2018, our primary focus is to improve people’s lives through design.

The Lab’s research resolves around designing socially responsible architectural prototypes. By working hand-in-hand with local partners on real sites, our aim is to develop projects that foster a better sense of community. The prototype acts as a vessel to generate new knowledge about how people inhabit their environment.

Our philosophy revolves around the paradox embedded into the word “condition”, as a noun it refers to a context, a circumstance, or a situation, while as a verb it implies change - to condition something based on an original state.

Book Stage 
Hong Kong, 2020
One year on from successfully designing and erecting the “Book Tree” under the Mei Foo Viaduct, The School of Architecture at The Chinese University oh Hong Kong, now proposes the second upgraded “Book Stage” project for the same site.

This new project is an evolution to the first design, combining a the same book exchange platform with a stage design for formal and informal performances. The design is completely fabricated from sustainable timber, and fabricated using Traditional “Dong” craftsmanship.
