As part of the course assignment taught by Patrick Hwang at CUHK, Architectural Theory and Criticism, students are asked to communicate the concepts behind the thematic topic they are researching in and create a poster to portray, in a propaganda style/ manner, the concepts behind. The poster shall deliver visual clarity and be informative in conveying the key agenda of the thematic topic. The poster shall capture the essence behind the theory. When appropriate it may seek to provoke and stimulate reaction and response. Graphically reflect the nature of the thematic theory.

During one October theory class, students presented two essays on architectural phenomenology: An Architecture of the Seven Senses by Juhani Pallasmaa and Atmosphere by Peter Zuthmor. Instead of outlining and explaining the experiential phenomena articulated in the essays purely through written words and PowerPoint. This group of students transformed the typical class room into an temporary blackbox of acoustic and visual experience. They came in an hour early to black out all the windows creating a room size camera obscura with CU campus buildings projected onto the class room walls. Although there were moments of hiccups, nevertheless it was efforts well appreciated.
