    Review 2019 / Prospectus 2020 is a book of 260 pages featuring a collection of outstanding student works, final thesis projects in the past academic year, and an introduction of courses for Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree, and other programmes by the Department of Architecture at the University of Hong Kong.

    The cover artwork and the book design are hugely inspired by the modernist design of the Knowles Building, where the Department of Architecture is located. Generated from a rectangular grid structure, the iconic visual symbolises the forwardness, dynamism and resilience of the school, as the first impression of HKU Architecture, for prospective students and visitors.

    The neon green applied on printed and digital media serves as a new interpretation of HKU’s signature emerald, a color honoring the legacy but also enlightening the future.

    English text is set in Neue Machina by Pangram Pangram Foundry, paired with DM Sans by Colophon Foundry. Chinese text is set in Toppan Bunkyu Midashi Gothic by Toppan Printing, paired with Source Han Sans TC.
