The topic for the M1 studio I’m doing this semester is “LINKS AND HUBS” and the studio teacher is Esther Lorenz.

We are going to investigate the new Shatin-Central line that is planned and in the end of the semester all eight of us are all going to present an individual proposal for one of the stations.

I was given the Kai Tak station to work on.
