About the Value Factory Academy
Thinking outside of the box. It’s a common place these days, but for the Value Factory Academy, it still is very true. After more than a full week, the participants in this new school for design and creative leadership are putting their routines upside down.
The Academy, as part of the Shenzhen Biennale, continues the creative process that led to the Value Factory during the last 11 months. It explores more in depth the countless architectural qualities of the old glass factory and its industrial surroundings, that are still waiting for re-development. It goes on with organizing events to add momentum to the buzz on this site at the urban border of Shenzhen. It amplifies the communication to make sure more and more people will find their way to this very special place. By doing so, this test phase of a new future school for Shekou, is in itself already radically different form the specialist curriculum, most architects went through during their studies. Welcome to the art of the perfect combination.
