Arup Inno Vision Lecture Series

(Supported by the HKIE Civil Division)


Programme highlights

Our city relies on a complex web of systems and services to thrive.  Contemporary systems thinking is bereft of a converging mechanism to deal with current drivers of urban changes.  “Smart Green Resilient” offers one such approach, providing the necessary direction to synchronise multiple planning aims into a wide-ranging yet integrated objective to meet the challenges of the “new normal”.   The lecture will present Arup’s innovative ‘Smart, Green, Resilient’ philosophy which was developed from its extensive participation in East Asia’s urbanisation, serving as a conceptual framework to enhance the urban development process and forms a next-generation model of best practice.



Mr Wilfred Lau is a Director of Arup.  Wilfred has more than 30 years of experience in managing and delivering large-scale multi-disciplinary planning, transportation and engineering projects in Asia. He has led Arup’s consulting activities across East Asia in the last 15 years. In recent years, he focuses on the research and development of smart, green and resilient cities in Asia, advising governments on development and delivery of future generation of cities.
