James Laws design vision and inspiration quote for HKDC Annual Report 2019-2020

James Law’s design vision and inspiration quote for Hong Kong Design Centre Annual Report 2019-2020.

Design Vision:

“The future of design should be a “Design of Purpose” focused on solving the big problems of the world, and alleviating suffering in our flawed world.”


“Billions of people in the world struggle to afford housing, are homeless, and live without dignity. The world’s economic and political systems have propagated a huge divide between those who have can and cannot afford a home to live. Architecture has become more an economic commodity than a solution for housing. The OPod concrete pipe house takes a cheap readily available component of concrete water pipe and converts it into a home solution that can provide housing for billions of people.”
