Roving Exhibition of HKHS 70th Anniversary

Exhibition

To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Housing Society, Oval Design was commissioned to design and create an informative roving exhibition to tell the story of the second largest public housing provider of Hong Kong and their dedications to tackling the city’s housing problems from 1948 to the present.

 

In order to brief members of the public on the city’s housing development as well as the accomplishments achieved by the society over the past seven decades, Oval Design brought the past to life with the use of a historical timeline of exhibit designs and interactive installations.

 

The walk-through began by the birth of the society with regard to the city’s housing crisis due to an astounding population growth. Exhibition visitors were then presented with significant stages or events of the city’s housing, which were mostly universal housing problems faced by each generation of the people at that time, and how the society took on those challenges in improving deplorable living conditions with new initiatives and ground-breaking solutions.

 

Old photos, texts and video illustrations were extensively deployed in the exhibition, with the 1:1 model of a domestic flat of the first rental estate of HKHS Sheung Li Uk in the 1950s as the most iconic creation, showcasing the actual conditions of the residents during those early days.
