AIA Hong Kong

Deadline Extended for AIA Hong Kong/RIBA (HK) 2020 Competition


Dear Members & Friends,

In this first of a kind competition, AIA Hong Kong and RIBA (HK) are partnering with Light Be, the first social housing enterprise in Hong Kong, for the design of four prototypical communal spaces to be used as references for other transitional housing projects in Hong Kong. This competition is open to all designers and architects and is aimed at encouraging them to assist at-risk families in our community.

A kick-off meeting will be held on July 24 at the AIA office at PMQ to introduce the project and match teams, each of which will be comprised of both architects and other product designers. After the competition, there will be a symposium to share the results and collect feedback from Light Be.

An online booklet will also be created to share ideas on how to utilize roof and other communal spaces in affordable housing projects to remind architects about the importance of providing suitable communal gathering spaces in all transitional housing being built in Hong Kong in the next five years.
