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.

Architectural Ingredients


This book is not about buildings: the architectural product, details and glossy photographs of completed projects; rather it is a short, mostly visual and highly subjective account of the creative process behind designs.  How ideas germinate, are nurtured and ultimately developed into a design proposal.  It unravels the fictitious myth behind the genius of the designer and exposes the messy, often dirty process of translating and transforming a thought into a project.

The structure of the book, in the same manner as my design process, is non-chronological: steps are often excluded, chapters constantly rearranged where the final composition here presented can be read as a frozen instance, a captured moment, of the constantly changing, dynamic design process.

Architectural Ingredients is the first book in a series of three volumes that falls under the heading “:ook” that aims to explore the world of architecture not from the standpoint of buildings, but all explore the hidden realities of designing space.
