Hong Kong can be though of as a laboratory with significant potential as a site for the creation of future urban models, not just in China but in the greater Asian continent, in Europe, America, and elsewhere. In HK Lab, an array of scholars from the fields of design, visual culture, business management, architecture, urban planning, art history, and semiotics focus on the unique conditions -- geographic, historic, political, economic, social, and cultural -- that have produced the ever-expanding network of ideas that make up Hong Kong.
