it's high time i posted some pictures of my school.
hong kong polytechnic is a school about the size of the university of michigan, around 25,000 students. the space it occupies is, of course, far, far smaller. furthermore, if i had only one word to describe hkpu, it would be brick. unrelenting, oversaturated brick.
brick, everywhere. architect zaha hadid has designed a new building for hkpu --- for the design department, no less --- slated to be finished 2011. it is not brick, mercifully. it is, however, unfortunately, zaha hadid.
