Building on the success of the inaugural exhibition, the second edition continued the exploration of design, collaborating with the iconic Zaha Hadid on "Eternal Flow". Accompanying the launch of the exhibition was an engaging panel discussion featuring Zaha Hadid Design’s Woody Yao and renowned designer Zhang Zhoujie amongst others, and chaired by Infrastructure Director Ross Urwin.
