PolyU Design Show 2021 features interdisciplinary co-creation
Innovation and Technology Bureau visits PolyU’s State Key Labs and National Engineering Research Centres
The PolyU Design Show 2021, organised by the School of Design, was successfully completed in July. Newly featured this year were the interdisciplinary capstone projects, where creative minds from different programmes at the School jointly designed practical solutions for the well-being of society. These projects included transforming quarantine into a mentally rewarding experience, raising the awareness of food waste, and strengthening family relationships.
Held virtually online and physically on campus, the Show also exhibited about two hundred student projects, as well as those in collaboration with commercial and non-profit sectors, by PolyU design graduates and students.
To enhance visitors’ experience, the Show introduced a new audio guide feature. In addition, a unique online 3D immersive exhibition of the Show was featured again this year, after receiving an overwhelmingly positive response last year.
