From September 2011 onwards, Bert de Muynck | MovingCities has been appointed ‘assistant professor’ at the The University of Hong Kong – Faculty of Architecture, teaching the course on ‘Architecture Theory and History [20th Century]’ at HKU Shanghai Study Centre. We’re very pleased to share this news and place special focus onto the upcoming ‘Under the Skin‘-fall lecture series, to be held at HKU in Shanghai.
About HKU Shanghai Study Centre
The Faculty of Architecture operates programs in Shanghai, at our Shanghai Study Centre, which is a vital counterpart to other programs in Hong Kong. Our goal is that every undergraduate in the Department of Architecture, and eventually the Division of Landscape Architecture, spends one complete semester of their studies in China, without interrupting their degree program at HKU. With the opening of this Centre, the Department of Real Estate and Construction has the advantage of a well-placed and equipped facility to augment its Taught Postgraduate China Program.
The Shanghai Study Centre also houses the HKU Shanghai Office, the HKU Journalism and Media Study Center, and architecture SH (a public gallery for the exhibition of design projects related to the mission of the Centre). The joint studios and other activities that the Department of Architecture conducts with other overseas Universities will also utilize the Centre.
