HKAC was initiated at the end of 2005, with a number of architects realising that there was a need to connect the professionals with people and to promote architecture to the general public. In 2006, HKAC was established and acquired the charitable status. Hong Kong Institute of Architects (HKIA) and Professional Green Building Council (PGBC) were then the founding organizations.

The 26 Founding Members of the HKAC has comprised of architects, engineers, surveyors and scholars. In the Articles of Association, there are 15 directors including one Chairman, two Vice Chairmen, a Honorary Treasury and a Honorary Secretary.

In 2008, HKAC has acquired its first presence at a ground floor space of Peel Street. Since 2012 to now, HKAC has moved to the HKIA premises.

Over the past 13 years, HKAC has organized numerous events for the public and acts as a bridge between Architecture and the Community.

One of our events “10-Most-Liked Hong Kong Architecture’ has been awarded the prestigious accolade of 2017 Japan Good Design Award and Art Development Council’s Art Promotion Award in 2017.
