Jonathan D. Solomon
Associate Professor,  Deparment of  Architecture, University of Hong Kong

“Aformal Architecture: Hong Kong’s Spatial Logic”
Solomon’s work explores public space and the contemporary city, through design projects such as Ooi Botos Gallery, a shophouse in a Hong Kong street market converted into a gallery for contemporary Chinese photographic art; research projects such as his 2004 book 13 Projects for the Sheridan Expressway, the 26th volume in the Pamphlet Architecture series; curatorial projects such as 2010’s Workshopping in the US Pavilion at the Venice Architecture Biennale; and publication projects through 306090 books, where he has served as a founding editor since 2001. His latest book Cities Without Ground, coauthored with Adam Frampton and Clara Wong, explores the relationship between climate and public space in the unique three-dimensional urbanism of Hong Kong.
