Tall Storeys is travelling exhibition celebrating the 50th Anniversary of HKIA Annual Awards, outlining the growth and changes of the architectural profession in the last 50 years. Sourcing original materials from the HKIA archives since 1958, the research and the curation led to selection of a diverse mix of building typologies which contextualised the exhibits within the context of dynamic socio-economic changes of the Hong Kong city to reflect on the relationship between Hong Kong’s architectural development and the city.
In response to the first exhibition venue inside RIBA’s headquarter building at the 66 Portland Place in London, the exhibit included marking out of the life-sized profile of one of the early Housing Authority’s residential unit plan that was designed for a typical Hong Kong family of 5 to demonstrate the difference in the density between the two contrasting cities. In a four-month period, SKY YUTAKA led a production team taking the project through all stages from concept, research, layout design, associated programme organisations to installation / dismantling and shipping back to HK as well as logistic management including design of exhibition fittings which can be flat-packed for ease of transportation.
