Design students showcase creativity through 3D virtual show
The PolyU Design Degree Show 2020, which showcased around 150 student projects covering bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree programmes in a wide range of disciplines offered by the School of Design, took place online due to COVID-19. The show enabled 3D virtual viewing of physical exhibits, an experience unique among the world’s top design schools. Work exhibited included projects from Advertising Design, Communication Design, Environment and Interior Design, Social Design, Product Design, Digital Media, Interactive Media, Design Practices, Interaction Design, International Design and Business Management, Multimedia and Entertainment Technology programmes, as well as work from the Urban Environments Design programme.
Professor Kun-Pyo Lee, Dean of the School of Design, said: “The Show offers an invaluable opportunity to employers seeking the best designers. It enlightens the public by showing them world class design, and inspires secondary school students to pursue a career in design.”
Among the creative work on display was Asit, a future double-decker compartment designed to enable elderly and disabled people to travel safely. The designer Hui Hang-tat, a graduate of the BA(Hons) in Product Design programme, was named the National Winner at the James Dyson Award 2020 (Hong Kong). Other designs included a mobile game for improving intergenerational relationships and a planter solution for sustainable living in densely populated areas.
