A playground situated next to a hillside and near a road surrounded by buildings. Multiple sculptural climbing structures are visible. There are clusters of coloured concrete cylinders and half-cylinders stacked on top of each other in different combinations, a group of standing and lying red and yellow poles thick enough to climb, and large curved white sheets of concrete. A red, white, and yellow slide structure made out of curved, bulbous shapes sits in the middle of a large sandpit. Large red, green, and white abstract patterns are painted on the neighbouring hillside, running down it to join the playground.

M+ / Design Trust Research Fellowship

Since 2015, the M+ / Design Trust Research Fellowship programme has supported original research projects investigating issues relating to design and architecture in Hong Kong, the Greater Bay Area, and Asia through a transnational lens. In addition to expanding the current body of knowledge in these areas, the findings from the fellowship will inform research on the existing collection, future acquisitions, and other programmes at M+.

Applicants of the fellowship should engage in advanced research on historical or contemporary topics related to either a single discipline (such as architecture, graphic design, industrial design, and urbanism) or cross-disciplinary developments, taking into consideration the region’s cultural, social, economic, and political conditions as well as its international and cross-cultural knowledge networks. While topics from the 1950s and onwards are preferred, exceptional proposals that focus on issues related to the beginning of the twentieth century will also be considered.
