HKIA celebrated its 60th-anniversary with the REVEAL 2 Exhibition – For the City. For the Community. + − × ÷, which ended with great success

The exhibition showcased the works of 90 Hong Kong Institute of Architects’ (HKIA) members in the form of photography, installations, drawing, calligraphy, 3D sculptures and handicrafts, aiming to demonstrate the close ties between architects and the community.

“I think the exhibition achieved great success!” said Corrin Chan, chairman of the organising committee for the exhibition. “The artworks attracted a lot of media attention and some visitors said the exhibition inspired them to think what kind of living space and urban planning we really want and need.”

The organising committee revealed that the exhibition allowed artists to exhibit their works and exchange ideas among fellow architects. Also, they received feedback from around 500 visitors, and many of them said it was a good opportunity to have a face-to-face discussion with architects, a rare occasion for most of the public.

Attracting about 18,000 visitors during the entire exhibition, Chan said the public hoped to have more similar exhibitions in future. “Visitors really appreciated the dedication and commitment of architects to the society. This exhibition allowed visitors and architects to return to the basics of architecture: for the people,” Chan concluded.
