The research and writing of the book Manuel Vicente: Caressing Trivia began seven years ago, in 1999. It is not a straightforward biography about Manual Vicente nor Eric Lye but intended to bear particular repercussions, Professor Lye s dedication to his students, who were provided the inspiration and drive for his creativity and architectural education; and the quest for knowing one's beginning and our identity in an age of experiencing the dynamics of cultural hybridity. Proceeds from book sales will benefit the Professor Eric Lye Architectural Education Fund.

About the Author:

Professor Eric Lye is described as a most rare jewel of academia and an innovative educator, Malaysian-born Eric Kum Chew Lye s reputation was initially established in the United States, Britain, the Netherlands, Canada and Singapore with innumerable scholarships, awards, honors and prizes. For almost a quarter of a century, since 1976, Lye served the University of Hong Kong, both as Chair Professor and periodically as Dean of Architecture. Lye was also engaged in design consultancy to several practices whose work included the award-winning Hong Kong University of Science and Technology development. In 1988, he was named the first Architect of the Year by the Hong Kong Artists Guild. In recognition of his professional achievements and international standing in the field of architecture, Professor Eric Lye was awarded an O.B.E in 1996 in Hong Kong. Lye passed away in 2003 at the age of 69 with a great life to celebrate.

Review:

Manuel Vicente: Caressing Trivia examines the work of Manuel Vicente, a Portuguese architect who practices extensively in Macau and whose designs express a unique architectural synthesis of Western and Chinese cultures, leaving an influential mark on present day Macau. Professor Lye leads us towards an appreciation of, not only Vicente's architecture, but also his own thoughts, conceptual approach, and sensitivity to care and sing about trivia. --Reviewer
