• Architecture is Art Festival 2015 X Archi Y Tecture

    18 May 2015


    Architecture Is Art Festival is an arts festival with architecture as its theme. It is an biannual event held since 2009, and it helps participants get to know architecture, understand architecture, and learn architecture through the perspectives of both our daily life and arts. The theme of this year is “X Archi Y Tecture”. X is a variable, and architecture could be known through and interpreted by any means and element.

    Mathias Woo, the Artistic Director of the Architecture is Art Festival 2015 says, “X could represent a lot of things. We can talk about architecture from a historical perspective, or from a philosophical perspective, or from a daily life angle…Through the perspective of performing arts, we have more space to manifest the concept of architecture.”

    “It (Architecture Is Art Festival) is a unique undertaking – possibly the first of its kind in the world.”

                           – The Wall Street Journal Asia

    “ This Festival safeguards architecture, and also safeguards the cultural value of architectural arts that is going to be drowned soon.”

                         – Hong Kong Economic Times

    “ Architecture is a creative blend of form and function.”

                         – John Tsang, Financial Secretary

    “Architecture is an imaginative and abstract art, but there must be structure and a solid foundation.”

                         – Yip Wing Sie, Music Director, Hong Kong Sinfonietta

    “ Architecture is part of man’s inherent instinctual nature to create shelter through the manipulation of space.” Daniel Wu Actor
