AIA Hong Kong FAIA Leadership Series – Hello Fellow with William Lim, FAIA

Please join us for our first FAIA Leadership Series – Hello Fellow with William Lim, FAIA. 

The AIA Fellowship program was developed to acknowledge architects who have made significant contributions to architecture and society and achieved a standard of excellence in the profession. Fellowship recognizes the achievements of the architect as an individual and honors the awardee on a national, or international, level. The AIA College of Fellows seeks to stimulate a sharing of interests among Fellows and encourages them to promote the purposes of the Institute, advance the profession of architecture, mentor young architects, and be of ever-increasing service to society.

William Lim was elected a Fellow in 2010. Having designed many highly acclaimed projects across the globe, his work often blurs the boundary between art and architecture. As an architect, art collector and artist, William’s influence can be seen in his interactions with clients, artists, art collectors, colleagues and others.

Due to popular demand, this event is sold-out. 

Please contact Chapter office if you wish to be on our waiting list.

Please join us for a tour of The Murray, Hong Kong sponsored by B.S.C. Group Limited and Dornbracht.

Located in the heart of Central, this former Hong Kong Government Headquarters is one of eight historic landmarks recognised by the Conserving Central Initiative, introduced by the HKSAR Government in 2013. After a redesign by Foster + Partners, Design Architect, with Wong and Ouyang, Civil & Structural Engineers, Urbis, Landscape Architect, and Tino Kwan, Lighting Consultant, the building has been transformed into the city’s newest landmark hotel, The Murray, Hong Kong, as the flagship property of Niccolo Hotels.

Designed by Ron Phillips in the 1960s, the building was regarded as an outstanding example of sustainable architecture in its time and has won numerous awards for its groundbreaking, energy-efficient design, including the Energy Efficient Building Award, in 1994.  All of the signature features of the original Murray Building, including the facade with its imposing three-storey arches, the vehicle ramp and distinctive recessed windows, have been retained.

The tour will be led by Colin Ward of Foster + Partners and representatives of The Murray, Hong Kong.  It will be concluded with a light refreshments host by The Murray, Hong Kong.

AIA Hong Kong Building Tour – Tsing Yi Southwest Leisure Building

Please join us for a fun outing to the Tsing Yi Southwest Leisure Building – a vibrant and landscape-filled sports hub for the community of Tsing Yi.  We encourage you to join us with your kids to have fun in the biggest public children’s play room in Hong Kong and invite friends to join us for a chill mini-picnic.

The Hong Kong ASD created this 16,000m² building to become a major community presence in the form of an athletic centre, offering an arena, an outdoor climbing wall, an indoor pool, and children’s playrooms. The richly composed palette of materials, including a folded cement-board façade, black-colored, tilted steel plates, fair-faced concrete and contrasting white walls, provides a vibrant and energetic atmosphere both inside and out. Tiers of open plaza and public lawns permeate the building, further opening it up to the community it serves.
