Award winning architect and interior designer Gary Chang is famous for Curio-Box, his 32 square metre apartment which has been featured in the New York Times for its 24-fold transformations according to changing needs and functions. The clever design is based on the notions of Change, Choice, Co-Existence and Connectivity which are the parameters of new urban dynamics and compact living, blurring the boundaries between the building envelopes and the furniture.

Chang's other famous designs include the Suitcase House in the Great Wall Commune, Beijing; Kung Fun Tea Set by Alessi; Broadway Cinematheque; The Organic Pharmacy and many others. He has participated in major international biennial and triennial exhibitions and won numerous prestigious awards in architecture, interior and product designs. Gary graduated from The University of Hong Kong in 1987 with a degree in Architecture.

Due to the small size of the Curio-Box, participants will be divided into two groups: group one will visit the HK Film Archive while group two visits Curio-Box, and then vice versa. Afterward, we shall enjoy lunch with Gary for further design inspirations.

Come and see how tight space is ingeniously designed to the extreme!
