To celebrate the milestone anniversary year, HKIA will organise a series of events and activities to both reveal the skills of its members and to enhance public interest in the work of architects throughout Hong Kong. As well as the events, president of HKIA Vincent Ng, has designed a commemorative logo to mark the anniversary, presenting a refreshed image for the institute by incorporating a colourful combination of traditional drawing tools that are used by architects.

HKIA representatives include (from left to right). Mr. Billy Chan, Deputy Chair of Board of Internal Affairs of HKIA, Mr. Tony Ip, Deputy Chair of Board of Internal Affairs of HKIA, Mr. Paul Chu, Hon. Treasurer of HKIA, Mr. Daniel Chi, Hon. Secretary of HKIA, Dr. Rosman Wai , Vice President of HKIA, Dr. Dickie Lau, Council Member of HKIA, Mr. Vincent Ng, JP, President of HKIA, Mr. William Tseng, Vice President of HKIA, Mr. Albert Chan, Council Member of HKIA, Ms. Corrin Chan, Chair of Board of Internal Affairs of HKIA, and Mrs. Rita Cheung, Chief Executive Officer of HKIA.

The society will also have representatives at the 2016 Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition with a response exhibition being held in Hong Kong in early 2017.

Towards the end of the year, an extensive show will take place at ArtisTree in Taikoo Place. This exhibition will showcase the artistic talents of many of the members from HKIA, while engaging the community in a range of architecture- and design-related workshops.

A selection of other events including the 60th Anniversary Ball, the HKIA Sports and Family Day and the launch of the organisation’s 60th Anniversary publication will also take place throughout the year. A full listing of dates and events can be found at www.hkia.net/60anniversary.
