Social Participation and Engagement

Dedicated to serving our community, ArchSD has been actively participating in public activities and events to share our experience in sustainable building design and environmental-conscious practices.

Participating in Publicity Events

Besides holding symposia on building design, we were invited to take part in nearly 100 publicity activities initiated by other governmental departments, educational institutes, trade associations, professional organisations, media, and industry partners in 2014.

Through providing talks, offering site tours, joining interviews, meeting with interested parties, and showing ceremonial support, ArchSD’s representatives have demonstrated a strong commitment to social engagement.

Seasonal Celebration with Community

ArchSD has been one of the exhibitors at the annual Hong Kong Flower Show held during the spring time in Victoria Park by the Leisure and Culture Services Department since 1990s. Our display in 2014 was inspired by the unique image of the city - dynamic, vibrant, and full of energy. Taking the opportunity to arouse the general public’s appreciation and protection of the environment, we used the demolition materials from the old Victoria Park Swimming Pool to form some bold and interesting shapes as the basic framework and vertical elements for the landscape and floral display. The display won the Gold Award for Design Excellence.
