RIBA opens new Hong Kong outpost

  • Comment

The RIBA has launched a new chapter to represent its 600 members in Hong Kong and mainland China

Designed ‘to offer increased support and networking opportunities’, the chapter will also connect RIBA members to architects in mainland China and throughout the wider Asia Pacific region.

The new chapter was launched during an event in the British Consulate in Hong Kong attended by RIBA president Angela Brady and British Consul-General to Hong Kong and Macao Andrew Seaton.

The RIBA also announced it would introduce a Part III examination in Hong Kong next year.

Seaton said: ‘The Chapter will support the strong contribution that RIBA architects from Hong Kong and mainland China are making to the improvement of the built environment in the region. Its launch is another sign of the continued strong growth in business and professional links between the UK and Hong Kong.’

RIBA president Angela Brady said: ‘Hong Kong is home to some of the world’s best architecture and many of our members are established in this wonderful city. It is a perfect base for the RIBA to build upon our existing relationships, explore new ones and promote the important role of architecture throughout the wider region.’

Interim chair of the RIBA Hong Kong Chapter, John Campbell said: ‘This initiative from the RIBA presents the opportunity for local members to collectively participate in architectural issues and champion high quality design, technical excellence, environmental and social policies and innovation.’
