The School of Humanities and Social Science organised a lecture titled ‘Man and Nature Interface: Architecture and the Eleven Dimensions’ on 24 February 2022. Professor Alexander Law, Adjunct Professor of the School of Humanities and Social Science of the HSUHK, was the speaker of the lecture. He is a registered architect in Hong Kong. To his credit are more than 150 architectural projects including residential and commercial buildings in Hong Kong, Mainland China and the United States. He is also a successful business leader, and is currently the Chairman of Yu Tai Hing Company Limited, a property developer in Hong Kong.
The lecture focused on psychosocial dimensions of the human mind-self, which were schematised into Eleven Dimensions with Mindfulness being the origin. Professor Law took ‘Architecture’ as a metaphor to explain to the audience that the formation of the self, as well as the relation between Man and Nature, begins as ‘a point (zero dimension)’, and becomes ‘a form (third dimension)’, and then further develops into other dimensions of human and social relations.
