Engagement with Youth

As part of the Hong Kong Institute of Architects (HKIA)'s Architecture Week 2012 activities, ArchSD hosted a student group visit on 12 October 2012. The participating students came from Pok Oi Hospital 80th Anniversary Tang Ying Hei College, Wah Yan College, Hong Kong, and School of Architecture, The University of Hong Kong. Besides providing a site tour for the students, our architect delivered a speech to help students acknowledge the nature of ArchSD and its working projects, in the way to encourage and inspire their future career development in related industries.
