AIA Conference on Architecture 2019
Description:

 

Dear Members and Friends of AIA Hong Kong:

You are cordially invited to join AIA Conference on Architecture 2019 June 6-8, Las Vegas, Nevada. 

The theme this year is Blueprint for a Better Future, with a focus on cities like Las Vegas as incubators for transformation and leading trends.

Future Cities
Beyond its excess, extremes, and appetite for the ersatz, Las Vegas is a global pioneer in design. Its ever-changing landscape is a ‘test tube’ for the kind of transformation that influences architecture and design trends the world over, not just the casinos and nightlife, but the hospitals, schools, community centers, parks, apartment buildings, and art installations that are part of people’s everyday lives.  This work is a testimony to how architects are designing a better future by taking on the critical challenges facing cities—and our world—today.

At A’19 some of the most creative architects, designers, visionaries, and trend curators will explore designing a better future, for everyone.

The A’19 program will include sessions on artificial intelligence, data visualization, 3D concrete printing, Amazon Spheres, tall wood, nano-grid condos, immigrant architects, overcoming homelessness, the latest in WELL design, the energy-hog myth, designing border crossings and ports of entry, zero net energy affordable housing, new codes and standards, and architecture tours of local standouts like Frank Gehry’s Lou Ruvo Brain Center, Seven Magic Mountains, and the Downtown Container Park.

Register NOW!

AIA Hong Kong Building Tour – The French International School Tseung Kwan O Campus
Venue:The French International School Tseung Kwan O Campus
Description:

Dear AIA members and friends,

AIA Hong Kong invites you to join our first building tour of 2019: the new French International School Tseung Kwan O campus, 28 Tong Yin Street, Tseung Kwan O, NT, on February 23 (Saturday) 10:00 – 12 noon.

The French International School at Tseung Kwan O is Hong Kong’s greenest school, an open and active learning environment for kindergarten, primary and secondary level pupils.  Completed in September 2018, the 19,600 m2 campus sets an outstanding example for sustainability with its strategic use of daylight, extensive landscaping and energy saving features.

The facility was designed by Henning Larsen, practitioners of sustainable design and inclusive design strategies, and the tour will be led by Henning Larsen’s Elva Tang and Claude Bøjer Godefroy, together with Jean-Charles Querette, Int’l Assoc. AIA, former Project Manager for the school.

On this tour you will experience Henning Larsen’s renowned approach to daylighting design and see how the school’s collaborative learning vision has been implemented within an innovative open classroom concept.  You will also learn about many of the state-of-the-art sustainable design strategies incorporated into the campus.

Due to the popularity of our building tours and limited space available, early registration is strongly recommended. Priority will be given to AIA members.

We look forward to seeing you there!
