Description:

 

Dear Members

 

Sustainable design and the impact that buildings and the construction industry have on the environment and climate change are of increasing importance worldwide. As architects, we have a shared responsibility to develop our cities without negatively impacting the use of resources and energy, and by minimizing the production of waste.

How can BIM assist?

BIM ensures that architects have more control over every aspect of their projects, from the way that spaces are arranged and oriented to the selection of materials and the efficiency of construction systems. Once a Digital Twin, or Virtual Project, has been created it is easy to evaluate each project in the virtual environment before the actual construction takes place. We can thereby make a big difference on the impact of what we design by optimizing our projects in terms of reduced energy consumption, the use of recycled materials – where possible – proper access and orientation, and the minimization of waste by careful control of quantities.

From Concept to Reality: Yi Pei Square Playground Tour | May 15, 2021
Venue:Yi Pei Square Playground
Description:

 

Dear Members,

AIA Hong Kong is pleased to host a tour to Yi Pei Square Playground park, recently launched by Design Trust Futures Studio and other collaborators and stakeholders in the community.

Yi Pei Square Playground is a testament to Design Trust’s continuous and dedicated efforts in bringing together the local communities and other stakeholders from both private and public sectors to transform the unique concepts by cross-disciplinary design experts into meaningful outcomes that impact society or public spaces in Hong Kong. The Park explores the idea of creating a “communal living room” within a densely populated residential area in Tsuen Wan, Hong Kong, that is surrounded by subdivided flats, suitable for residents of all ages. The design of the space incorporated the residents’ needs researched through a series of public engagement and workshops, facilitating multi-generational interactions for residents. The public space allows the public to enjoy the inclusive and custom-made play equipment, dedicated leisure and activities zones for different users as well as the specially designed graphics and floor patterns. More details on the park here: https://designtrust.hk/newsletter/yi-pei-square-playground-tsuen-wan/

In this tour, Marisa Yiu, AIA, co-founder and Executive Director of Design Trust will share and discuss the collaborative process involved and her devotion to the positive values of design in the role for shaping a better Hong Kong and the region we live in. Please RSVP (rsvp@aiahk.org) with your full name and membership number by 5:00pm on Thursday May 13, 2021 and, if you have any questions, contact the Chapter office at rsvp@aiahk.org / 2882-6011.

Curating Architecture as Knowledge Production with Shirley Surya | May 13, 2021
Description:

 

Dear Members

 

We often think about contemporary architecture in terms of its immediate impact, its hardware or software, plain or covert political objectives and so on. It is only when we have a bit of distance that we can then talk about its contribution to Architecture, vis-à-vis the works’ impact on the profession, on a city’s image, so on and so forth.

In Curating Architecture as Knowledge ProductionShirley Surya will discuss her work on curating Architecture as a geographically specific yet transnational design and historical project. We will be treated to her perspective on collecting architectural works as points for introspection, conjectures, and perhaps even validation – and just in time as Hong Kong gains new narratives through the M+ Design and Architecture collection.

You can use your smartphone, tablet or PC to join. Install the zoom.us application prior to the meeting.

1.    Please use your real name for registration so that we can credit 2.0 LUs to you.

Computational BIM for Architects - Archicad | May 11, 2021
Description:

 

Dear Members

 

Computational Design (CD) is a powerful tool when it comes to developing complex geometries and overcoming design challenges that would not be feasible with a manual process. In combination with BIM we can enhance the way we design, develop, manage, coordinate and build our projects.

But how do we combine these technologies?

This process can be challenging. Teams inside architecture firms often disagree on the use of the two methodologies and there can be a large amount of repetitive work when architects overlap what has been done with CD tools, with that done in BIM.

Being able to integrate these technologies can bring the best of two worlds to a project’s development. Taking the right steps and setting up the right methods can make this collaboration very fruitful. Connecting these technologies can also mean connecting teams within an organisation.

In the end, both CD and BIM aim to automate processes, save time and minimize errors while allowing for design freedom. This webinar will explore the best way to merge the two technologies to empower architects, enabling them to design smarter, more efficient and sustainable buildings.
