Make Room is a platform for new and extended works based on theses generated during the academic year of 2013 at the Department of Architecture, The University of Hong Kong. It disseminates the agendas that motivate many of the projects in the department to the broader public and instigate events that engage ideologies with everyday practice. The book is designed as a toolkit of ready-made materials, including manifestos, postcards, posters, and a board game, allowing for all kinds of actions and adaptation.
Being the first collaborative project by the 2013 graduates of the MArch program at the University of Hong Kong, Make Room demonstrates that one can participate in urgent architectural discourses and contribute to society with passion, repertoire, and intelligence to substantially initiate change.
The HKU Architecture Papers (AP) Project is an annual collaborative exercise of documentation, reflection, and continuation of student works produced in the Department of Architecture of the University of Hong Kong, by the fresh graduate class. Make Room is the third volume of AP. Its second volume, Dialogue Recorder, is also available.
The book won the "50 Books" category of the 2015 50 Books | 50 Covers competition, organized by Design Observer in association with American Institute of Graphic Arts.
