Urban Politics Studio

Urban politics and the (new) role of Architects

Since the emergence of de-regulation policies in the past few decades, followed by the rise of neoliberalism, architecture and urban design have been increasingly driven by global capital flows. As a consequence, the historical social role of architecture during modernism has been redefined into a commercial one that responds predominantly to market demands.

The Urban Politics Studio runs as an Advanced Architectural Design Studio within the Masters Program of the School of Architecture at the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
