The Henderson: Igniting Innovation in HSUHK’s Future Innovators

On a day marked by inspiration and forward-thinking, The Henderson opened its doors to the future innovators from HSUHK. Our students had the privilege of stepping into the future of PropTech, as they toured the show suite of this new iconic landmark of Hong Kong.

Students from HSUHK were given an exclusive tour of The Henderson’s show suite, where they were introduced to an array of smart technologies that demonstrate the building’s leadership in innovative and sustainable architecture. The visit was a core component of the HSUHK Innovation Project Competition 2024 (“the Competition”), organised by the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Section, Centre for Teaching and Learning (CTL), encouraging participants to integrate the ethos of FinTech and PropTech into practical, innovative solutions driven by the power of Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially ChatGPT.
The experience was more than a tour; it was a living classroom for innovative ideas. The establishment of the Dr Martin Ka Shing Lee Innovation Awards for the Competition reflects Dr Martin Lee’s visionary thinking and his commitment to nurturing new generations of innovators.
From the moment our students set foot into the show suite, they were amazed by an olfactory welcome and then a symphony of all senses, symbolising The Henderson’s commitment to harnessing cutting-edge technology and art in architecture.
Guided through the show suite, the students learned about the intricate details of The Henderson’s design and construction, with an emphasis on how the building stands as an icon of modern, safe, and sustainable urban development.
Having received knowledge from The Henderson experts— who spoke with passion and depth—our HSUHK students were all greatly enlightened. We express our sincere gratitude to Henderson Land Group for hosting this show suite visit, and to Mr Kevin Ng, Senior Deputy General Manager, Project Management (2) Department, Henderson Land, who helped sow the seeds of change for a brighter and more sustainable future in the minds of our young visionaries.
