Introducing our 2019 ACC Fellows
 
This marks the final episode of our series! Since 1990, ACC has been an avid supporter nurturing young architects who play an integral role in shaping the spaces we are in today. We are very glad that the two awardees of the Hsin Chong–K.N. Godfrey Yeh Education Fund, Sun Shimeng and Kung Yick Ho Alvin are the latest cohort to this historic line-up! To view the full list of 2019 ACC fellows from mainland China and Hong Kong, click here.

Sun Shimeng | Hsin Chong–K.N. Godfrey Yeh Education Fund: Tsinghua-MIT Exchange Program
 
Sun Shimeng graduated with a Bachelor in Architecture and PhD in urban planning from Tsinghua University, China, and became an assistant professor and researcher at the university since 2016. Her expertise lies in the history and theory in urban planning, conservation planning in historic cities, and regional architecture. Currently, Sun is interested in the history of urban planning in prefectural cities in Taiwan, and provincial cities in mainland China between 17th and 19th century. Sun’s passion and deep knowledge in urban planning have earned her recognition and support by city governments and institutions for her research projects. Professional affiliations include: Beijing Urban Planning Society, Architectural Society of China, and Expert Advisory Committee of National Historic City of YongZhou. She was awarded the Beijing Higher Education Teaching Achievement Award (First prize, 2017), Beijing Excellent Urban and Rural Planning and Design (Third prize, 2015), and the Human Settlements Design Award of China (Excellent Tutor Prize, 2015). With ACC’s support, Sun is now a research fellow of the SPURS program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where she will study conservation planning of historic environments in the US.
 

Kung Yick Ho Alvin | Hsin Chong–K.N. Godfrey Yeh Education Fund: Young Architect Award
 
Alvin Kung is currently the Chief Architect in Ronald Lu & Partners and since 2016 working part-time as lecturer and professional consultant in the Chu Hai College. He has obtained two master degrees: Master of Architecture, CUHK and Master in Advanced Architecture from the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia, Barcelona. Kung has won numerous awards and recognitions, including Gold Award (Design for Asian Awards, 2013), BIM Excellence Awards (2014), Create Smart Young Design Talent Award (2016), and the Scrabble Lamp, DesignInspire – RetroInnovation Competition (2018) organized by Hong Kong Trade Development Council and Hong Kong Institute of Architects. In 2017, Alvin spent a year with 3XN, an architectural firm in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Keen to design with social and technological impact, Kung’s works have participated in symposiums and exhibitions in Vienna, Barcelona, Berkeley, Tokyo, Taipei, and Shenzhen.  His specialization in Business Information Modeling (BIM) earned him Young BIMer of the Year (2014) by the Hong Kong Construction Industry Council. Kung is an active member at the Hong Kong Institute of Architects, eager to nurture and support emerging architects in the field.  His research in the US will focus on the latest models, trends and themes in the architectural field and programs for young architects, meeting organizers and aspiring young architects.
