Over the past 10 years, her creative work has been exhibited in Hong Kong, Europe and the US, including “The Next Economy” (2016) at the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, “Objection! Protest by Design” (2016) at Vitra Design Museum, as well as “EmpathiCity – Making our City Together” (2015) at the International Design Biennale in Saint-Étienne, France.

With an interest in sharing knowledge through practice, Caroline has organised numerous workshops for students across Asia, where she aims for the students to gain a better understanding of the nature of their living environment and its underlying rules.
