RIBA Hong Kong Chapter
With over 1000 members in Hong Kong, the RIBA Hong Kong Chapter celebrates and showcases all that the membership has to offer in the region. It supports its members locally through a series of networking opportunities, a programme of building tours with a focus on revitalisation projects in Hong Kong, and providing a forum for local activities and debate.
Since the chapter’s establishment in 2012, it has introduced a collaborative programme of events based on themes that are firmly embedded in Hong Kong culture.
With the RIBA’s strong cultural and education agenda, the chapter also contributes to public outreach and education activities. The recent provision of the Part 3 course in Hong Kong has proven to be a major benefit of the chapter, strengthening professional skills and knowledge both locally and regionally.
Hong Kong is a perfect base for the RIBA to build upon existing relationships with the Hong Kong Institute of Architects (HKIA), explore new connections and promote the important role of architecture throughout the wider region. The chapter also provides a platform for the RIBA and its members to connect with colleagues in mainland China and throughout the wider Asia Pacific region. The chapter exists for its members and invites all who are new to the region to be a part of this thriving architectural community.
The RIBA HK Chapter represents a platform for RIBA members and the wider architectural community. If you would like to take part in, or initiate future events and share your design aspirations, please get in touch with the Chapter Committee who will be pleased to advise you.
