A huge thank you to The Mills Fabrica for seeing the potential in my work!
The Mills Fabrica
The Mills is a Hong Kong-based landmark revitalization project which is scheduled for completion in 2018. The Mills project will transform the Nan Fung Group’s former textile factory into a destination for innovation, culture, and learning. As part of the award, I have the opportunity to spend 3 months as Designer in Residence at the The Mills Fabrica in Hong Kong. I will share more details about this later!
Two prizes have been awarded – The Mills Sustainability Prize in recognition of outstanding work in sustainability and community well-being, and The Mills Fabrica Techstyle Prize which celebrates material innovation.
I am honored to have been awarded the Fabrica Techstyle Prize for my project This is grown – an organism-driven approach to material design, which merges modern, industrial textile practice with future biotech principles.
