RIBA launches Hong Kong chapter | 3 October 2012
A platform has been launched for members of the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) in Hong Kong, which hopes help them to connect with colleagues in mainland China and other areas of Asia.
That’s according to propertywire.com, which reports the new chapter will enable the institute to offer ‘support and provide networking opportunities’ for members in the region.
Furthermore, to coincide with the launch, RIBA claimed it was aiming to introduce the ‘RIBA Part 3′ in Hong Kong next year, which will strengthen existing professionals’ skills and knowledge both locally and regionally.
As Hong Kong is home to some of the ‘world’s best architecture’, the chapter could help Hong Kong and the wider region become even better when it comes to property design, such is the reputation of RIBA’s members, as well as highlight the important role of architecture.
Andrew Seaton, the British Consul-General to Hong Kong and Macao, believes the new Chapter will take great steps in improving property development in the region.
He said, cited by architecture.com: “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.”
