The Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) is hosting an exhibition that examines the way architecture, communications and the economy integrate together in Hong Kong between 10 July and 15 August.
Lord Foster, architect of the award-winning Hong Kong International Airport and HSBC's Hong Kong headquarters, will officially open the exhibition on 10 July.
Movement and connectivity are the themes of this exciting exhibition: the movement and connectivity of people, goods, money and information in Hong Kong.
It will feature some of the existing and future Hong Kong architectural landmarks such as the Bank of China and Cheung Kong Centre, the massive container port, the international airport, Tsing Ma Bridge, and an impressive redevelopment project in West Kowloon.
The Director General of the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office in London, Andrew K.P.Leung, said today:
'Hong Kong is as renowned for its imaginative architecture as it is for its business ethos. We are indeed a city on the move. This exciting exhibition will show Hong Kong life with a focus on the people using existing and future infrastructure developments.'
To complement the exhibition, the RIBA will host a lecture in on 12 July at 6.30pm. Three experts will discuss the intricate transport and communications network which make Hong Kong one of the most complex infrastructures in the world. Roland Paoletti, formerly Chief Architect of the MTR in Hong Kong and Head of Architecture of the Jubilee Line Extension, Rocco Yim, Hong Kong based Architect and Shuihung Pau, Hong Kong's Director of Architectural Services will illustrate the processes with their vast knowledge.

The exhibition and talk is part of a three-month Hong Kong Festival in London that begins on 4 July organised by the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office.
