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.
