About This Book

In this book, Dr Albert Hong tells his own story. Today, he is prominent in his field, as chairman of RSP Architects Planners and Engineers. Albert Hong and RSP have grown as Singapore has grown, overcoming many of the challenges associated with a young, fast-developing nation. His early years were overshadowed by war and occupation, but he proved that adversity can be a springboard for achievement. In 1964 Albert Hong joined Raglan Squire & Partners as an associate. Over the next 50 years, he transformed the firm. RSP has become one of the biggest, most successful and most respected architectural firms in Southeast Asia. Among many charitable contributions, he has always given generous support to educational institutions and deserving individuals. This is a very human success story, likely to inspire readers planning their careers.
