AIA Hong Kong Building Tour – The Mills : New Art and Cultural Complex for Hong Kong
Due to popular demand, this event is sold-out.
Please contact Chapter office if you wish to be on our waiting list.
AIA Hong Kong invites you to join a building tour of The Mills.
The Mills is a landmark revitalization project conceived and constructed by Nan Fung Group who were at the heart of the textile manufacturing industry in Hong Kong in the 1950s and operated one of the leading cotton spinning factories. The Mills pays homage to the history of industrial innovation by converting the now-dormant factories into a hub for technological and cultural innovation. The three former mills have now been combined into a single, cohesive complex covering roughly 260,000 square feet, housing the Center for Heritage Arts & Textile (CHAT), Fabrica (an incubator, fund and space/lab/store), and Shopfloor. This project has successfully revitalized a traditional-industrial building, converting it into spaces that support the growth of new startups and cross-specialty collaborations in Hong Kong.
We will tour the facility with Ray Zee, General Manager of Design at Nan Fung Group, on April 11, 2019 (Thursday), at 7:30pm. The tour will conclude with light refreshments provided by our host, The Mills.
Due to the popularity of our building tours and limited space available, early registration is strongly recommended. Priority will be given to AIA members.
