The Exhibition is organized around:
– Vernacular and Tectonic Culture (Wang Weijen, Kim In Cheurl, W-KLabs)
– Digital Fabrication ( Archi-Union, Spencer Steenblik)
– Culturally informed product design ( HU Ke)

Let’s Charrette is an important part of Thinking Creatively Conference. You will team up randomly with designers from Architecture & Graphic program and mentored by the speakers and professors. Each team is required to complete our latest design challenges within 32 hours. At the end of the seminar, each team will give a presentation of brand logos, packaging, retail environment design or interior graphics. The winning teams will be announced after the jury review.
The theme of Let’s Charrette will be announced on the day of the event.
