This years DESIGN H(ij)ACK will be located in Ordos City. Ordos is a city in Inner Mongolia, China, home to about two million people.  Located in a region rich with natural resources such as gas, coal and rare earth metals.  Ordos is internationally known for being a ghost town. The city has  emerged as the most famous, and most infamous,of China's overbuilt and underpopulated instant cities magically popping out of no where with billions of dollars invested. DESIGN H(ij)ACK will take a closer look at the after effects of rampant urbanization and what they leave behind in their wake. We welcome our participants to observe, absorb and explore methods of engagements to the city's current condition.

PROGRAM OUTLINE 

H(ij)ACK”: while “HACK” has been widely used to describe the destructive behavior of anarchist activism, “HIJACK” is to interrupt the original continuity of an ongoing process and divert it towards its (hijacker’s) own desired course or purpose. This program proposes to merge these two phenomena.

The main objective of the program is to generate tangible prototypes and solutions along the theme of "DESIGN H(ij)ACK - When Art & Design Meet Public Space". Cross-disciplinary collaboration is a necessity, combined with strong knowledge integration from research, concepts, design, to execution, “DESIGN H(ij)ACK” encourages all participants to think differently, design efficiently, and work economically, mostly important: collectively. May it be a discarded chair, an deserted Hutong space, abandoned amusement park, or public infrastructure that is no longer functioning or valid, or playground related-through "DESIGN H(ij)ACK" interventions are expected to become innovative inventions. Collaborative initiatives within architecture and public art will be emphasized. We will address different areas of design that manifest in new media technologies, social spaces and public art.

"DESIGN H(ij)ACK" : the term "HACK" is widely used to describe the destructive behavior of anarchism. "HIJACK" means to interrupt an ongoing original continuous process and redirect it to the desired process and purpose. In this plan, these two phenomena are combined into one main concept.

In China's unique social development environment, participants will face a series of unique problems brought by China's rapid urbanization, such as society, culture, economy, residence, life and entertainment, and try to provide design solutions from various perspectives. Since this experience must be acquired through the participants' own personal experience, this first-hand direct participation is the key for participants to enter this mixed academic field. From concept development to output the final prototype work, this is a complete dynamic organic process participants will not only become clear in the process of understanding of the challenges and problems faced, and through cooperation bring their ideas to realize, and can coordinate and balance the various by resource constraints in the process of design output of constraints (such as labor force, speed, budget, material, places, context and technology, etc.). Along with the DESIGN course, DESIGN H(ji)ACK hosts a series of art and architecture talks by international masters and local art and DESIGN practitioners, as well as interesting trips to important cultural sites, urban architecture and manufacturing plants. This program includes tutor BBS and artist workshop. After six weeks, the students will report and exhibit their work. In addition, the program provides students with a creative, learning and lifestyle that combines food, housing, work and study.

MENTORS


10.jpg

A key aspect of this programme is how our mentors engage with each member of the design group. By breaking down the traditional hierarchy of roles usually characterizing relationships between teacher and pupil or master and apprentice, it creates a platform for reciprocal exchanges of dialogues and co-development of ideas.  Further more it encourages every participant not only anticipating to the changes in the process of design development, but also embracing the differences each member contributes.
