Good news! HKAC is planning our first Archi-Trip to Iran from 14 to 24 April 2018.
As the remnants of an empire that once covered almost the entire area from Greece to China, Iran is full of historic wonders. With a history of thousands of years, Iranian architecture has appeared great variety, both structural and aesthetic, from a variety of traditions and experience.
And with twenty UNESCO World Heritage Sites, there is no shortage of monuments to visit. From elaborate mosques to sprawling desert cities, the breadth and variety of historical architecture in Iran is stunning.
In addition to historic gates, palaces, and mosques, the rapid growth of cities such as the capital, Architecture of Tehran has brought about new construction.
Next April, come join us to explore the amazement of mathematics and sciences in both ancient and contemporary Iranian architecture! Architects Raymond Fung and Corrin Chan will join the trip too. Don’t miss it out!
Besides, we are honoured to have Professor Ting Sun-pao Joseph (former Chief Curator of the Hong Kong Museum of History, current Honorary Assistant Professor at the HKU School of Chinese and Adjunct Professor in the Department of History at the CUHK) to share with us the Iranian architecture and culture, on 1 February 2018, 7-9pm, at HKAC. Registration is on a first come, first served basis and SPACE IS LIMITED!
For the Archi-Trip, as we only have limited quota, priority will be given to those pre-registered members and friends.
