Family Day Design Workshop:
Re-Create with I. M. Pei

This event is suitable for children aged 4 and above to participate with their parents. The content is designed according to the specific developmental stages of children. Children under 4 years old will not be admitted.

The workshop ticket will include same-day access to all General Admissions exhibitions and the Special Exhibition I. M. Pei: Life is Architecture. Please retain your ticket to facilitate your entry to the galleries. Each ticket permits one child and two adults to enter.

Please see ‘Event Arrangements’ below for details.

This workshop is distinctly designed alongside the Special Exhibition I. M. Pei: Life Is Architecture and is M+’s first parent-child workshop focusing on architecture as a theme. Architect Kenrick Wong and his design team invite adults and children to collaborate and explore I. M. Pei's iconic design concepts through hands-on learning experiences.

The workshop consists of two different themes; the glass pyramid of the Grand Louvre in Paris and the iconic architectural structure of the Bank of China Tower in Hong Kong. Families are encouraged to use modules of different shapes to create architectural models, test imaginative design ideas, and experience I. M. Pei's creative process.

Architecture and design can bring people closer together. Throughout the workshop, adults and children will not only explore architectural elements such as light, space, and geometric shapes but also engage in conceptualising and experimenting with design alongside their family members. Architecture can be a bridge for cross-generational communication and interaction.

Participants are welcome to join sessions in selected months to explore two significant architectural projects from I. M. Pei's career together with architect Kenrick Wong and his team.

About the Architect

Kenrick Wong graduated from the University of Hong Kong's School of Architecture and has been inspired by the works of I. M. Pei since he was a student. He incorporates the consideration of interpersonal interactions into spatial design, exploring how architecture can bring communities together. In recent years, he and his design team at maison V Orient Occident Atelier have been actively engaged in various community building and design projects, both locally and internationally. They combine the concept of sustainable development with cultural heritage and multimedia technology, injecting vitality into different cities and rural areas in China, Cambodia, Japan, the United Kingdom, and beyond.

About Family Day

Family Day brings forward family-orientated events on Sundays during the second half of each month. We invite families to share their creativity through various types of activities that foster deeper connections among members and with other families as we come together to form a vibrant family collage on an open platform at M+.
