AIA Hong Kong YAG Networking Series - Emerging Architects: It's a Business Too!
Venue:The Artist House
Description:

 

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

Please contact Chapter office if you’re interested.

Please join us for our YAG Networking Series – Emerging Architects: It’s a Business Too! with Avoid Obvious Architects, COLLECTIVE and TheeAe LTD.  This event is free but please RSVP by 27/7 (Friday).  Walk-in guests will be charged HK$100.

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.

Refreshments sponsored by Noble House Development.

AIA Hong Kong FAIA Leadership Series - Hello Fellow with William Lim, FAIA
Venue:CL3 Architects
Description:

 

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.

Recently elected a Cornell University Trustee and has been bestowed with an Honorary Doctorate in Arts and Sciences by SCAD, William will explain the journey that led to his becoming an architect and how he has been able to create such consistently exceptional work, eventually leading to his FAIA status. We will hear how, as part of the first wave of US trained, AIA member architects in Hong Kong in the 1990s,he has successfully run his practice in Hong Kong and regionally. We will also get a glimpse into his involvement on the Board of Alumni at Cornell University where he completed his architectural studies.

William will also share his experience in applying for Fellowship, the process of doing so, and the roles and responsibilities that achieving FAIA status entails.

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.

The project was the recipient of a 2017 HKIA Merit Award (Community Building).
