Event description
Come celebrate 27 years of AA Asia at our final event, which includes a book launch, forum and talks by emerging creative practices.

About this Event

AA Asia is an association of Asian Architects founded in 1992 by William Lim, whose objectives are to advance the theoretical discourse in architecture and urbanism in Asia through research and writing, and to create a platform for ideas to be shared among its members. The purposeful discussions were conducted as travelling workshops and public conferences that involved many of Asia’s most significant Architectural thinkers and practitioners. Their discussions focused less on the established norms than on discovering emerging ideas and people.

The AA Asia project is coming to a close. Come celebrate 27 years of AA Asia and discover emergent architecture practices through the final event - JOURNEY.
