RIBA Hong Kong Chapter
International Chapters provide a dedicated forum for members and local practitioners to meet and exchange ideas on issues relevant to the profession. The Chapter is about connecting members and collectively promoting cultural discourse to strength the interests of the RIBA and raise the profile of the professional regionally as well as globally.
International Chapters enable members to come together as a community with common interests and shared knowledge, to enhance their sense of belonging and benefit from locally developed RIBA-related services.
With over 800 members in Hong Kong, the RIBA Hong Kong Chapter celebrates and showcases all that the membership has to offer in the region, to better support its members locally through a series of networking opportunities, a programme of building tours with a focus on revitalisation projects in Hong Kong, and provision of a forum for local activities and debate.
Since the Chapter’s establishment in 2012, the chapter has introduced a collaborative programme of events based on themes that are firmly embedded in Hong Kong culture - Shop! Talk! Eat! and Celebrate!
Shop! - is a variation on the RIBA Regent street Shop Windows project, to celebrate design excellence in HK, showcasing competition-winning design installations by young practitioners.
Talk! A pecha-kucha style lively discussion inviting local designers and artists to debate on architecture, design, heritage and the arts. Eat! an edible architecture contest to showcase the ability of creating with food in a design context, and Celebrate! the end of year HK chapter social and networking event for members to share creativity and get connected
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 our existing relationships with the local Institute (HKIA), explore new ones 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.
