Ewha–CUHK Workshop on Contemporary Asian Urbanism

CUHK and Ewha Woman's University jointly organized a second workshop from 6 to 31 July. The workshop is a credit-bearing elective that explores Asian urban space and cultures. It was supported by the CUHK Office of Academic Links, Office of Summer Programmes, the School of Architecture, and the Hong Kong Architecture Centre. Twenty students from the two universities (11 from CUHK, 9 from Ewha) spent one week each in Hong Kong and Seoul engaging in field work and exchange, after which both groups completed course assignments together via online interaction.

Students attended specialist lectures with matching field trips, covering topics on historical architecture, contemporary urban culture, as well as planning and sustainable development. Places visited included Changdeokgung palace, Gwanghwamun, Cheonggyecheon, the Seun Arcade, the Heyri Art Village in Seoul, and the Hong Kong Museum of History, the City Gallery, the Legislative Council assembly, Ping Shan, Wetland Park and Tin Shui Wai.
