Past, present, future

London’s Victoria and Albert Museum – known by all as the V&A – has long been in the vanguard of international art and design exhibitions, constantly pushing the boundaries of interpretation and understanding. In addition to its countless galleries displaying paintings, sculptures and ceramics, it has staged special exhibitions on subjects as diverse as the fashion of Yves Saint Laurent and the music, artwork and stage shows of Pink Floyd.

More recently, it has attracted attention for its reimagining of its premises. The newly opened Exhibition Road Quarter is a stunning addition to the building, and one that includes the world’s first porcelain courtyard. The work of architect Amanda Levete, the concept marries visitor needs and expectations with contemporary design aesthetics, while maintaining the integrity of the museum’s historic facade. 

The strive for change, while learning from the past, is something we aim to emulate with our redesign of Perspective. With a focus on architecture, design and, in particular, people active in those disciplines, we look forward to developing the publication further as a digest of industry developments in Hong Kong, the region and across the world.

In this issue, we take a neck-bending look at South Korea’s tallest skyscraper, Lotte World Tower, recently completed by KPF. On home turf, we interview Hong Kong design virtuoso Alan Chan who curated the Very Hong Kong Very Hong Kong exhibition showcasing the city’s spirit across different disciplines. Chan talks about the importance of education and how young Hong Kong creatives must seize the opportunity to explore their roots and establish an identity.

Just what sort of future these young designers will find themselves in is another question. As artificial intelligence has an increasing impact on our professional lives, almost certainly threatening jobs, we invite two designers to share their views on how it will transform the design sector.
