For the second year in a row, The Link has provided the venue at its shopping centres for the winning projects of The Hong Kong Institute of Architects (HKIA) Annual Awards. The exhibition gives the local community an opportunity to appreciate outstanding designs by local and international architects. In addition to helping the public gain a better understanding of architecture, this initiative strengthens The Link’s relationships with the community.
“Holding this exhibition is meaningful.” He added. “By having the opportunity to view outstanding architectural projects, the public can broaden its vision and know more about the close relationship between architectural design and the community. This is the same direction The Link takes in renovating its properties.”
Cullen Wong, Deputy Chairman of HKIA Annual Awards, said, “HKIA Annual Awards has witnessed the development of architecture in Hong Kong. Architecture has close relationship with our everyday lives. Quality living environment can be created by better space utilisation by architects. We organised the roving exhibition last year with the objective of encouraging the public to know and understand more about architecture. To continue promoting this philosophy of HKIA, we co-organised the roving exhibition with The Link again this year to allow people from all walks of life to understand architecture.” He also thanked The Link for offering venues for the exhibition.
The exhibition opens at Chung Fu Plaza in Tin Shui Wai today. Other venues include Hau Tak Shopping Centre (6-13 July), Stanley Plaza (2-14 August) and Lung Cheung Plaza (4-10 September). Eleven winning projects will be featured, including designs, plans and photos.
