FLUX
The URBAN FLUX design studio will examine Hong Kong as a complex, dense and compressed urban interior. Particular attention will be paid to understanding conditions of flux and a recognition of the operative potential of the city upon ways of living, modes of commerce and public/social exchange.

Travelling to Hong Kong RMIT Interior Design students will participate in a series of design activities to gather, analyse and speculate upon new urban typologies in relation to the production of interior situations. Planned engagements include Woods Bagott, HK PolyU (TBC) and other local RMIT alumni.

Returning to Melbourne will allow for comparative consideration of the cultural specificity of these ideas in a different social, political and economic urban context. It is hoped that a continued exchange of ideas with HK PolyU during August, September and October will lead to the development of a collaborative work for exhibiting as part of the Business of Design Week. (Melbourne is the 2018 Partner City to Hong Kong)
The students will work across a range of media including film, photography, diagramming, drawing and scenic model making. The studio aims to explore how the discipline of interior design meaningfully contributes to urban design, ways of living and the development of contemporary cities.
