The first Cambodia Architect Forum hosted by the Board of Architects, Cambodia, will kick off this week together with Cambodia’s biggest international expo on Building & Construction, Water Management, Power & Electricity, HVAC, Security & Fire and Architecture & Interiors.
More than 8,000 trade visitors and delegates are expected to attend Cambodia’s biggest building, construction and architecture design event when it opens from September 7 to 9 at the Diamond Island Exhibition Centre (Koh Pich).
The CAMBUILD ’17 exhibition will showcase the latest innovations, designs and supplies from more than 300 exhibiting companies as well as brands from 26 countries.
Phuoeng Sophean, a Secretary of State at the Ministry of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction and the Secretary General of the Board of Architects, Cambodia, said a panel of top architects from Singapore, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos and Cambodia will speak at the Cambodia Architects Forum.
“The regional experts will present papers on ‘Sustainable Cities and Culture in Architecture Design’. In addition, there will also be a panel discussion on ‘Asean Green Architecture’,” he said.
“The two-day forum from September 7 to 8 is expected to be attended by over 300 architects from around the country,” added Mr Sophean.
This forum is expected to be the largest gathering of architects from the public and private sectors in Cambodia.
The first day will focus on iconic green building architecture and the technical advances in the design and construction of high-rise buildings. The second day will see technical papers on innovations in design, building and construction technology.
By bringing together CAMBUILD, CAMWATER, CAMENERGY, CIVAR, CAMSECURITY & FIRE, CME, CAMPROPERTY 2017 and the CAMBODIA ARCHITECTS FORUM under one roof, it is designed to maximise the time and opportunities for trade visitors to explore.
Mr Sophean hopes that the integrated events will provide support for the infrastructure development of the kingdom as it moves towards sustainable and green buildings and architecture.
