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.

Elective 
Hong Kong, 2014
Spatial Fragments


“Don’t play what’s there. Play what’s not there” Miles Davis, 1959

The course pursues the development of the idea of space as a concept. Space, when read alone, becomes an abstract word which spells both ambiguity and impenetrability. Yet when associated with a description, i.e. Spiritual Space, Public Space, etc… space immediately becomes tangible and understandable.

Each class of this elective will analyse an articulation of space (fragment), investigating the reciprocity between built and un-built space. The three canons of investigation will be threefold: Matters/Absence/Light.
