Hong Kong Architecture Exhibition Unveiled in New York

The Hong Kong Institutes of Architects (HKIA)’s Urbanism and Architecture Exhibitions for Excellence unveiled a display in New York on Oct. 11, highlighting the works of more than 25 local and international firms.

Dubbed "Beyond Territories – Made. Make. Making," the exhibit marked the third stop of a six-month moving exhibition that started in Hangzhou, followed by Beijing. It will conclude in Hong Kong at the end of this year after the New York showing. The Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, New York (HKETONY) graced the opening ceremony to show their support.

HKETONY Director Candy Nip said: “Hong Kong’s architecture embodies the city’s rick culture and cosmopolitan character. The innovation displays in the three core zones (‘Made,’ ‘Make’ and ‘Making’) of the exhibition fully epitomise the timelessness and timeliness of the architectural achievements of Hong Kong in the past quarter-century.”

Partnering with the American Institute of Architects, New York, the HKIA will organise a two-day symposium on urban design and sustainable architecture. Nip added, “The symposium provides an excellent forum for professional and cultural exchanges between Hong Kong and the United States.”

Officiating at the opening ceremony were Vice President of the HKIA, Helen Leung; Vice President-Elect of the HKIA, Julia Lau; curators Professor Bernard Lim and Roger Wu; President of the Royal Institute of British Architects-USA, Catherine Clark; Executive Director of AIANY Center for Architecture, Benjamin Prosky; and Deputy Consul General of the People’s Republic of China in New York, Li Shi-peng.

The exhibition is now open to members of the public until Oct. 25. For more information, click here.
