Mr Shuttleworth, on behalf of all of us, students, staff and parents, I’d like to thank you for giving up your evening to share your fascinating insights into the world of architecture and your journey from building sandcastles into becoming a world-renown architect.
I’m sure I speak for all of us here when I say how impressive it is that little details in buildings can impact our world greatly. We are very in awe of the process architects consider in order to get a balance between economics, human interaction and sustainability, and how to link a building to its local vernacular.
I remember presenting a seminar to my peers last year, exploring how architecture can impact our mental and physical health, so it was mesmerising to see how you incorporated nature into your designs to improve biodiversity as well as our well-being.
Lastly, I would also like to thank you on behalf of everyone from HK for your contributions to constructing the HSBC main building and the HK international airport. As an overseas student who lives in HK, the airport is the first place I see my family after a long school year, so it holds a sentimental place in my heart. This is the power of Architecture and I hope one day I can contribute to this influential industry
