Carmen C M Tsui

City University of Hong Kong
Participates in 1 Session
Dr. Carmen C. M. Tsui is an architect and urban historian. She obtained her Ph.D. in architecture at the University of California, Berkeley. Tsui is interested in housing history, Chinese urbanism, and the history and theory of city planning in twentieth-century China. Her research and teaching agendas focus on the historical processes which created the present-day urban environment and the social, cultural, and political meanings behind the production of urban space. Tsui is involved in three research projects funded by the Hong Kong Research Grants Council. The first project, Finding a Model for Urban Living: The Origins of Public Housing in China, 1920s–1940s, traces the origins of public housing in China to the Nationalist era of the 1920s and examines the state’s efforts to bring housing into the government sphere. The second project, Welfare Housing Before the Shek Kip Mei Fire: A Study of Four Philanthropic Housing Organizations in Hong Kong, 1950s–1960s, seeks to advance understanding of the position and role of nongovernment organizations in housing provision. The third project, Building a Culture of Homeownership: A History of Condominiums in Hong Kong, 1950s–1980s, explores how a homeownership culture was created in Hong Kong and has affected residential landscape and condominium design in the city. Tsui is a member of the editorial board of the Journal of Urban History.
