Our Home, Our History – An Illustration

The project involved a group of Hong Kong Design Institute (HKDI) students creating conceptual drawings for the unique artistic book Our Home, Our History – An Illustration, learning history through art. The book depicts the various chapters of Hong Kong’s development in the 1950s to 1970s, such as agriculture and the rise of the manufacturing and tourism industries, and outlines the relationship between the Kadoorie Family and this history. Select artworks were featured in a public exhibition, and the book was donated to all local primary schools.
