Architects to form NGO to preserve legacy

A group of Cambodian architects, lecturers and students is preparing documents to register with the Interior Ministry as an NGO, representatives said yesterday. Sin Sochiet, chief architect at Group 4, Architects+Engineers, said the organisation had its first meeting last Friday and, pending approval from the ministry, would meet again “in a couple of months”. Chea Bunseang, principal architect at Bunseang Architect and Associates and the organiser of the meeting, said the new NGO – dubbed the Cambodian Society of Architects – would “support and promote Cambodian architecture and architects, and find a way to recover our architecture”. Sin Sochiet said this would be accomplished in part by publicising the work of domestic architects.
