BKA Partners with IAPA and University of Newcastle Architecture Students Program

For the second time, BKA has hosted two visiting architects from IAPA, an architecture studio in Guangzhou China with which the practice has longstanding ties. Neo and Yang Yang were hosted by our Sydney studio for an immersive experience that granted them firsthand insight into Australian architectural practice and further strengthened ties between the two practices. On the last night of their stay, the visiting architects were accompanied by BKA staff to Allianz Stadium for the Asian Champions League match between Sydney FC and Guangzhou City.

BKA has also fostered a new partnership with the architecture faculty of the University of Newcastle, where we are sponsoring a new program designed to enrich students with an all-round knowledge of the profession and industry. The program will include a series of lectures throughout the year featuring talks from influential Australian architects, builders, and project managers. We look forward to nurturing the next generation of talent and contributing to the development of the industry of tomorrow.
