Eric Lye Memorial Travelling Scholarship

On the Donor

The late Professor Eric Lye Kum-Chew (黎錦超教授), visionary architect, educator and Renaissance intellectual made his mark on generations of architects as Chair Professor and Dean in HKU Faculty of Architecture.  In October 2013, the Faculty held a Public Forum and Dinner to mark the tenth anniversary of his passing away.

In his honor, friends and family of Professor Lye, as well as staff, students and alumni of the Faculty donated generously as a remembrance of the man himself and his contributions to the eduation of architects.  Proceeds from the dinner and donation received will go towards the establishment of the Eric Lye Memorial Travelling Scholarship which will be devoted to enriching the education and broader prospects of our students.
