Please join us for our next Hello Fellow event with Professor Nelson Chen, FAIA, FRIBA, FHKIA.
Hello Fellow is a series of informal presentations intended to highlight our chapter’s FAIA leaders and their perspective on architecture, as well as to encourage members to apply for Fellowship. AIA Hong Kong is pleased to announce this year’s event with Professor Nelson Chen, whose talk is titled Professing Architecture -focused on the intersection between practicing architecture professionally and teaching architecture in a professional degree program. Professor Chen will also share his experience in applying for Fellowship, the process of doing so, and the roles and responsibilities that achieving FAIA status entails.
Professor Chen has been Principal Architect of Nelson Chen Architects Ltd (since 1987), Director of the School of Architecture at the Chinese University of Hong Kong (since 2014), and the founding president of the AIA Hong Kong Chapter (1997-98). He was elected a Fellow in 2010. His designs have been featured in numerous publications and exhibitions, and he has won more than 35 international design awards from the American Institute of Architects and AIA Hong Kong, the Hong Kong Institute of Architects, and UNESCO, among others.
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.
This event is one of our FAIA Leadership Series and will take place at KI CUBUS, Causeway Bay. It will also be our Chapter’s First Quarterly Meeting!
