About this event

At this event, a small group of young professionals from New York City and Hong Kong will present their architectural firms and enter into dialogue with one another.

Each practice shares the desire to redefine the role of the architect working within the public realm and find innovative ways to design for communities, engage the wider audience and raise awareness of pressing issues in their respective cities. The projects presented will demonstrate various methods of engaging with a wide range of constituents while establishing alliances with both commercial and non-commercial partners to build institutions with a broad public purpose.

The event will be hosted simultaneously by the AIA NY Global Dialogues Committee and by AIA Hong Kong, and will be moderated by Grace Liao of KPF New York and Nicolas Medrano of SOM Hong Kong.
