RIBA opens chapter in Singapore

At an event at the British High Commission this week, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) launched its chapter in Singapore. This is the first RIBA International chapter to be opened since RIBA USA in 1997.

Forming a friendly, synergetic counterpart to the Singapore Institute of Architects, the Chapter will be led by Goh Chong Chia, an International RIBA Council member who has been appointed Ambassador, and his steering committee. RIBA Singapore will aim to deliver a programme of RIBA related activities at local chapter level with specific reference to supporting members in the region. The chapter’s forthcoming programme of activity was presented to a wide audience including developers, contractors, consulting engineers and Government departments.

In 2009, the Institute will be opening chapters in the Gulf region and in Hong Kong. These new chapters form part of the Institute's work to provide greater support for its members living and working around the world. The chapters will also provide an opportunity to foster links with international clients and partnerships between UK-based and local architects.
