The University of Hong Kong Faculty of Architecture’s Obituary to Professor Lin Zengjie

In memory of Professor Lin Zengjie

We are saddened by the passing of Professor Lin Zengjie, founder of the Department of Department of Land & Real Estate Management, the Renmin University of China, and former Honorary Professor of the Department of Real Estate and Construction. Professor Lin was a great scholar in land economics and management, and his works have significant influence on the institutions in real estate and land market in modern China. Professor Lin has been a friend and great supporter of the department, and his passing is a great loss to both the academic and the professional community. We extend our deepest condolences to Professor Lin’s family.

林增杰教授與世長辭,我們深表沉痛與惋惜。林增杰教授是中國人民大學土地管理系的奠基人、前香港大學房地產及建設系的榮譽教授,亦是土地經濟管理領域的優秀學者。他的研究工作為現代中國的房地產與土地市場以及土地管理專業發展帶來深遠而重要的影響。林增杰教授是我系(香港大學房地產及建設系)的忠實朋友與堅定的支持者,他的逝世是學界與業界的巨大損失。僅致哀悼之情,並向其親屬致以誠摯的慰問。
