SKY YUTAKA were invited to curate and produce an exhibition to celebrate the achievements of the 50th Anniversary of HKIA Annual Awards, outlining the growth and changes of the architectural profession in the last 50 years through award winning buildings.
Sourcing original archive materials from the HKIA archives since 1958, SKY YUTAKA selected items which brought together a diverse mix of building typologies within a exhibition narrative which would place the projects in a chronological, historical and socio-economic context.
In a four-month period, SKY YUTAKA led a production team taking the project through all stages from concept, research, curatorial direction, sourcing of contents, layout design, design of various movies, exhibition fittings, such as bamboo screens, tender, construction, installation, opening events, dismantling and shipping back to HK.
With the exhibition venue in a Grade 1 listed building, we undertook careful planning of elements to ensure that all components would be mounted away from any of the existing fabric and venue specific construction and installation would be carefully managed during the building’s ongoing operation.
At the outset, the exhibition contents were in flux and we designed a system which allowed the contents to adapt to suit the exhibition space. Through design of modular elements and setting a graphic direction this enables us to have flexibility to adopt the design for future exhibitions for all venue types.
