Description

Ida&Billy Architects – Fast Forward, Spring 2019

Talented Hong Kong architecture duo Ida Sze and Billy Chan kickstart the Fast Forward lecture series next week in an exciting prelude to this season's programme. This semester sees local and international experts in the field addressing the theme: Activism and Architecture.

Ida and Billy will discuss how they create architectural interest out of simplicity. They achieve this through caring attention to the requirements and characteristics of clients, users and sites to discover each project's meaning and potential.

The duo has combined diverse cultural backgrounds with more than 18 years of experience. Ida&Billy Architects was founded in Hong Kong in 2013 and they have worked with architectural masters Herzog un de Meuron, Steven Holl and Rocco Yim, with experience in pavilion, club house, residential house, residential tower, museum and stadium design. The studio was listed by Wallpaper* Magazine’s Architects Directory in 2018 as one of the 20 Emerging Architects from across the globe.

This lecture is made possible by the generous support of GIB®.
