Dear Members,

AIA Hong Kong is excited to announce First Projects, a series of conversations about “the
construction of practice” with talented young individuals who have initiated and maintained a
a career in architecture and design.
The series continues with Betty Ng, Assoc. AIA, Chi Yan Chan, Juan Minguez, and Katja Lam, all of whom are directors of COLLECTIVE, an International Architecture Studio practicing Architecture, Interiors, Exhibition and Urban Design; for this talk, we will also be joined by Min Ter Lim, Co-Founder of MIIM in Taipei, who will speak about a collaboration between the two practices.

What We Learnt

  • Collaboration is essential, and this is valid for architects in different phases of their career. Collaboration brings not only friction and inspiration for design thinking but also could open up more business opportunities;
  • Architects in the city should think collectively how small and medium size firms could craft their competency and eventually compete in the same arena with corporate offices for larger-scale projects;
  • There is always a learning curve in creating partnership for the office, and we should adjust and adapt collectively while considering both the forms of partnership and the culture of the office.
