MaD 2014: Details of Regular Application

The Fifth Direction: from to beyond

MaD started with “change” in 2010. In our fifth edition, “change” takes on greater specificity. “The Fifth Direction” is a metaphor for the exploration of what we envision as “better” ways forward – how do we transcend the existing cardinal points and depart from where we are? Where are we heading to? How do we get there?

To begin our renavigation, MaD 2014 starts with a brand new format. There will still be concurrent talks, interactive and 2.0 activities, but instead of choosing and competing for what YOU alone want to join, all 1,500 participants have to collaborate. An all-encompassing creative experience – from stage to spatial design and an experiential art piece – will rope everyone together for collective knowledge building. This is a radical experiment: we may reach a collaborative ideal; we may end up in chaos. In the spirit of sharism and common good, we trust that MaDees can make it.

MaD 2015 -【立村有時 3】摘去鮮花然後種出大廈

居住在元朗的鄉郊地方,身邊朋友都以為我的屋旁就是農田。其實這裡很多地方都已經建成三層高的房子,賣給外面的人,例如我們這家。 城市人搬回鄉村,一是想找便宜一點的房子,二是為了找回鄉土感覺。有些人就在自己的房子附近,種菜種果樹,面積不大,但足夠自得其樂,收成後就即日自己吃,或分一些給鄰居.........

MaD 2015 -【立村有時 2】設計救城市?

無疑,近五、六年,「公共空間」一詞成為香港城市討論的「潮語」。在整個 MaD 2015 年會,不時聽到來自香港甚至亞洲各地的參加者以改善公共空間作為他們對城市的希冀:更多公園,多點綠化。然而對公認為提倡公共空間先驅的丹麥建築師 Jan Gehl 來說,或許公共空間只是他一直推廣的「以人為本城市」 (cities for people) 其中一環?...
