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.

SNU DAAE 2.2
Seoul, 2013
Spiritual Space


The semester will be divided into two main parts, Research and Project.
The research project will be a 6 weeks assignment divided into two parts

A: Space/Time/Light > 3 Weeks
Students will not work with a site
You will venture into exploring Space
You will make models of spaces with plaster
The models will be scale less and will explore how light, time and movement interact.
The technique will be casting, where the positive space has to inverted, i.e. conceived in the negative
3 models one per week will have to be produced
All the models will have to be Photographed B&W in the darkroom

B: Projection and Plates > 3 Weeks
We will explore Piranesi’s drawings, specifically his 19 plates of the Carceri
You will be asked to make 3 plates for each model
3x3 = 9 plates in total
The plates will contain drawings of the spaces that you created and will contain 2D and 3D projections
All drawings will be in scale and Black & White lines
