AIA Hong Kong Building Tour : Little Tai Hang - Bring Hong Kong’s modern culture into the living space
Venue:Little Tai Hang
Description:

 

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 at Little Tai Hang for a journey through the eyes of developer, and recent GSD graduate, Tommy Pao, as he and his team walk us through their journey of transforming what used to be three separate alleyways into one of the most active neighborhoods in Tai Hang today.

Overseen from inception to operation by a single team, Little Tai Hang is an example of urban revitalization that takes the long view to community building. This included starting with questions like “How do you build a successful and sustainable business community?” and “What is the right scale and type of retail mix?”

The team will take us through their considerations of safety, cost-management and design, and ultimately discovered how to create a special place for people to gather that is both visually pleasing and economically viable – and that will continue to prosper in Hong Kong’s rapidly-changing urban environment.

The Little Tai Hang tour will be led by Tommy Pao and his team and will conclude with light refreshments hosted by the group. Note also that we will have our Chapter’s Second Quarterly Meeting before the tour, at 3:15 pm.

Due to the popularity of our building tours and limited space available, early registration is strongly recommended. Priority will be given to AIA members and attendees will receive 2 HSW/LU credits (pending Institute approval).

Please RSVP by June 7 (Friday) and, as always, if you have any questions, please contact the Chapter office at 2882 6011.

We looking forward to seeing you on June 15th!

International Green Building Symposium 2019 Hong Kong
Venue:Holiday Inn Golden Mile Hong Kong
Description:

Dear Friends of AIA Hong Kong,

You are cordially invited to join the International Green Building Symposium 2019 Hong Kong on Wednesday, June 12, 2019.  The symposium is a collaboration between AIA Hong Kong and the US Green Building Council (USGBC).

What does a sustainable future mean to the built environment in Hong Kong? While various technologies are helping raise the bar on new construction, our existing buildings also hold incredible promise. Highlighting the environmental and economic value of green buildings, the International Green Building Symposium Hong Kong will bring together regional opinion leaders and green building professionals across all related sectors. Award-winning architects will present their sustainable projects as well as their predictions and ideas for future green design. Developers will share their knowledge of the operational and financial models behind green buildings.

The symposium will provide a broad overall view of sustainable projects and will also be a great opportunity for industry leaders to exchange ideas on how to combat the negative effects of climate change in Asia.

This exciting and very timely discussion will take place at the Holiday Inn Golden Mile Hong Kong and all AIA attendees will receive 2 AIA CES LU/HSWs.

We hope you will have time to join us at this symposium.  Please RSVP (Click here for details).

See you on June 12th!

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 Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex
Venue:The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex
Description:

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 will host a tour of The Hong Kong Jockey Club University of Chicago Academic Complex by Revery Architecture (formerly Bing Thom Architects) on June 1st (Saturday).

The 52,000 square foot building was completed in 2018 and is now The University of Chicago’s satellite campus in Asia and home to its renowned Booth School of Business (Chicago Booth). The Mount Davis site was a former military facility, later a detention center, and has been converted to a landmark academic hub for business education.

The architect’s mandate was to respect both the heritage buildings and the natural landscape. Inspired by the magnificent views, steep topography and memories of the past, the resulting design carefully weaves the building into the challenging site, bridging across and connecting the scattered heritage blocks to create an environment that unifies old and new, natural and man-made. The sensuous building, accentuated by generous glazing and rythmic sun screens, respects the scale of the foliage and serves as a light foil to the existing buildings.

The tour will be led by Mr. Earle Briggs, Director of Revery Architecture, and his project team. They will share their experience and discuss the challenges that arose during construction with respect to both the historic buildings and the complex natural landscape. This will be a rare opportunity to learn firsthand how the global academic institution and this lovely site were sensitively combined to create this remarkable new complex.

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 on June 1st!
