The Awe of Awesome

PRESENTED ON SEP 20, 2013

Vancouver is Awesome

@ VOL 27 ON DEC 19, 2015

Mr. Hung began by sharing 'VANCOUVER IS AWESOME', including the culture shock brought by the rise of British and French culture and oriental immigration, the enriched variety in food, and the beautiful natural scenery that has became a favorite for movie making. He also introduced Granville island where he attended the Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and where there are a wealth of dance schools, art schools, letterpress printing shops, breweries and local activities. Finally, he introduced the process of his works during his period working at the BOCCI design company, and hopes to introduce Taipei to Vancouver in the future.

設計師洪忠權從「VANCOUVER IS AWESOME」開始分享,包括英法語文化、東方移民增加,所帶來的文化衝擊,讓食物相當豐富,美麗的大自然景觀也是電影取景的最愛等,以及介紹他就讀的艾蜜莉卡藝術及設計大學(Emily Carr University of Art and Design)所位於的Granville island裡,有豐富的舞蹈學校、藝術學校、活版印刷廠、啤酒廠等與當地生活,以及當時介紹就職於BOCCI設計公司的過程與作品,並希望未來能向溫哥華介紹台北。
