AIA Hong Kong YAG Networking Series – Emerging Architects: It’s a Business Too!

Please join us for our YAG Networking Series – Emerging Architects: It’s a Business Too! with Avoid Obvious Architects, COLLECTIVE and TheeAe LTD. Refreshments sponsored by Noble Development Group.

While the challenges of pursuing a career in architecture may be daunting – from the amount of education required, the length of an internship, licensure and exams, and the need to gain practical experience – the challenges of starting your own practice can be even more terrifying! To help demystify the process of how several young architects have started their own businesses, this AIA Hong Kong Young Architects Group presentation will feature three practitioners who will discuss the process they went through and the unique challenges they faced.

The founders of Avoid Obvious Architects, COLLECTIVE, and TheeAe LTD.  will each spend 15 minutes on the ‘whys and hows’ of forming their own studios – and what they are doing to sustain them and continue their growth. The presentations will be followed by a Q&A session that promises to be interesting.

This event is free to all AIA members and YAG Guests but please RSVP by 27/7 (Friday).  Walk-in guests will be charged HK$100.

HKIS: HKIS Annual Conference 2018 “Development Novel Solutions to Hong Kong’s Housing and Land Supply Dilemma”

 

AIA Hong Kong invites you to join the HKIS Annual Conference 2018 – Developing Novel Solutions to Hong Kong’s Housing and Land Supply Dilemma.  This event will be held on Saturday, September 22, 2018 commencing at 9:00 am at the JW Marriott Hong Kong.

For the seventh consecutive year Hong Kong has been ranked the most expensive housing market in the world. The city is still struggling to provide adequate, affordable housing for its current residents, and to meet the long-term housing needs of its growing population.  Supplying adequate housing to support families and ensure our economic and infrastructure development will continue to be Hong Kong’s greatest challenge for the foreseeable future.

The HKIS is the largest professional surveying institution in Hong Kong, with more than 10,000 members and a 34 year history. The Annual Conference is a platform for industry stakeholders to share their valuable experience and ideas. With the theme Developing Novel Solutions to Hong Kong’s Housing and Land Supply Dilemma, property industry experts, policymakers and academics will deliver presentations and case studies that analyse Hong Kong’s housing and land supply challenges – and identify opportunities for urban renewal, building rehabilitation and other means of increasing the supply of housing.

AIA Hong Kong is a supporting organization for this important conference and members who register before July 20, 2018 will enjoy the early bird rate. Registration Form

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.
