Due to unforeseen circumstances, 2019 M+ / Design Trust Research Fellowship Public Talks will be postponed and rescheduled. We will announce a new date for the event as soon as possible.  We apologise for any inconvenience caused. 

The 2019 M+ / Design Trust Research Fellows, Oliver Elser and Yasmin Tri Aryani, present their research findings in this public forum. Oliver Elser investigated the varied and multiple notions of Brutalism in Hong Kong’s architectural production since the 1950s, and Yasmin Tri Aryani studied how concepts of traditional or vernacular architecture are exercised in contemporary architectural discourse and practice in Indonesia. Each talk is followed by a discussion and a question-and-answer session.
