7th GE Colloquium (2014/15): “CROSSING BORDER│BORDER CROSSING 越界│過渡
Speaker: Mr Andy TAM
United International College
Mr Tam shared the projects of UABB (Urbanism Architecture Bi-city Biennale 2013) “Crossing Border│Border Crossing (越界│過渡)”with the teaching faculties. The projects successfully reshaped and reintegrated the physical-spiritual identity of Shenzhen regarding the day-and-night activities of the moving populations in terms of its productive, entertaining and cultural practice which characterises and differentiates those of other Chinese and world cities. The fact that the 24-hour, non-stop happenings in the UABB 2013 truly symbolised and signified the dynamic and energetic ambiance of Shenzhen was illustrated. A unique, vivid and vital phenomenon of the World City’s character and developmental model that visual and cultural activities interactively and endlessly contribute to total growth was also exemplified.
