Francis spent his early years in Hong Kong and pursued his Bachelor's degree at The University of Hong Kong. Being a design enthusiast, Francis has a deep passion for exploring innovative possibilities in architecture, including forms, scales, functions in relation to human activities. He actively participates in competitions and has achieved numerous international accolades, such as the 1st prize winner of Skyhive 2019 Skyscraper Challenge.
During the two-year study at the Royal College of Art, Francis continued to experiment with various design strategies while working on radical projects. In the previous year, as part of ADS 1, he focused on the potential of retrofitting a declining post-war mixed-use complex, with the aim of transforming it into a communal hub that revitalises the surrounding neighbourhood. This year, in ADS 10, he sought to challenge the framework of conventional practices through architecture. In the first term, he created a large-scale diorama of the Axel Springer Campus, a precedent project by OMA, to explore the realm of innovation. In the second and third terms, he delved into the unexplored domain of reverse logistics in online shopping, aiming to find a solution to the prevalent issue of the Return Culture. His proposal, the Re-fulfilment Centre, tackles excessive consumerism by collecting unwanted return products from Amazon, while fostering collective engagement through the establishment of a local community of making.
