I firmly believe that a working experience in architectural field will help me grow as a designer and preparing myself for the future challenge. In turn I believe that my abilities would to be an asset to any firm. I am a quick leaner,an attentive listener,and a passionate designer.

From far,the pavilion looks like a flat screen. This flat screen are formed by smaller folding panels and it generate spaces to accommodate various activities. Located in the urban area, this proposal is an alternative to Urban Camping. The camping platforms allow users to bulid their own tent right in the city where they can experience the first hand local culture. Careful planning of the camping ground give users sense of privacy while providing them greenery view in their individual lot. Penang Island, where current economic growth is focus on industrial sector, is depending largely on the food imported from Peninsular Malaysia. The proposal aim to redefine the role of food production in local context. Shift from rural area to city; old generation to young generation; traditional to modern method; heritage to modern building; consume to produce are all consider in this proposal.

The Final Thesis is a proposal that aim to provide multiple solutions in an problematic city centre which crowded with colleges students,residents and public visitors. SJ Commons provides an interaction platform for students,local residents and public visitors. Boundaries of the campuses will become more penetrable and its facilities will be used more efficiently for mixed activities. It is a commons for everyone who stay,live,study and work in that area. Freelance projects provided valuable opportunities for me to refurbish my skills and to work with different architects. I am able to work on a wide variety of projects different architects and after years of experience, architectural visualization and physical model are becoming the main stream of my services. 3Gen housing are designed for multi- generation families to stay under one roof and also support the needs of larger families which may require an additional bedroom with attached bathroom. This project is a correspondence to todays growing household size especially in urban area where the living expenses are higher. Exploration of new typology of high rise residential ] allow owners to have their units in two separate floors. 3

Close proximity of city campus in urban area increasing interaction between university and outside world. SS15,an early planned township with high concentration of PrHEIs is selected as the project site. SJ Commons provides an interaction platform for students, local residents and public visitors. Boundaries of the campuses will become more penetrable and its facilities will be used more efficiently for mixed activities. It is a commons for everyone who stay,live,study and work in that area.

  18. 18. 17 RESIDENCE @ JALAN KUCHING |Kuala Lumpur| [ DESIGN CONCEPT ] What? The current housing developments are mostly self-centred and isolated from the surrounding communities. Gated communities are becoming a current trend. Besides that,in certain areas of the City where housing has been built facing major roads is uncontrollably converted into commercial development. Why? The quality of the housing environment does not extend beyond the boundaries of individual residential development. Poor provision of community’s facilities and landscape are not proportionate with number of population. Lack of interconnection spaces between developments caused the gated community. This has promoted the high crime rates as neighbours does not have chance to interact with each other. Ironically,peoples always think that gated environment is the safest place to stay. How? The whole city environment should be observed in housing development planning in order to provide fluidity between different scales of social structures. The proposal of the housing development should be compatible with their surroundings,maintain connections,enhance the public spaces which they adjoin and optimise the spaces between developments [ SITE PLANNING APPROACH ] [ DESIGN DEVELOPMENT ] [ MULTI GENERATION LIVING ]
  19. 19. 18 In order to enhance the sense of belonging,the open gate community is created on the ground floor. Carefully planning of commercial areas and facilities help to secure the residents private life while provide interactions with the surrounding community.

  32. 32. 31 A central on-site energy centre will provide electricity for the devices and equipment and power to the biomass and the primary energy source for this will be agriculture waste and organic waste from the surrounding community. These organic matters will be burnt in a steam biomass boiler and used to drive the CHP system. Ash from the boiler will be re-used in the garden whilst heat from the CHP unit will be used to regenerate a liquid desiccant. This desiccant will be used to remove moisture from the fresh air supply. This helps cut power consumption; dry air requires far less energy to cool it than moist air does. Another renewable energy resource comes from solar energy through semitransparent photovoltaic panels at the centre atrium of the two towers. The kinetic energy from raindrop will convert into the electricity. Rainwater will be collected from the gutter behind the ring columns, rooftop,and storm water runoff. The water collected will be filtered and use for toilet flushing,landscape irrigation and top up cooling water.

Starting from the entrance, visitors will experience the spaces create by the folding panels. Non repetitive angle of folding panels creates different spaces and these spaces can be adaptable to the users’ needs. Along this journey, users will experience the unexpectation and changing of directions. Finally, the journey ended at the highest level where the best view is offered..

Craftsmanship and consistency of work quality is important in this model that built manually without any help of the machine. Client are satisfied with the end product. | Physical Model | This model is the largest physical model that ever built by archimaking. It is a challenging project with its scale and the craftsmanship skills needed to produce a detail model. Clients are satisfied with the end product. | Physical Model | This large model with two blocks of towers required high precision and consistent in the quality of works. The material selection and the finishing of the model became a benchmark of archimaking work. We are able to produce such high quality model without any help from the modern machine.
