Two-Week Workshop in Hong Kong with the HK Innovation Node and MTR

This summer MITdesignX and the MIT Hong Kong Innovation Node ran a special two-week workshop in Kowloon.

We brought together 10 students from MIT and 45 students from six Hong Kong universities to learn problem framing and solution building strategies from the MITdesignX methodology.

Our workshop focused on 3 problems statements presented by the workshop sponsor – MTR – the Hong Kong mass transit company.

Students worked together in multidisciplinary teams to identify problems and opportunities dealing with transportation logistics, TOD property dynamics and capital projects, and create solutions and a plan for their deployment.

Projects will be showcased in a competition in Hong Kong on Aug 26.
