process 1 process 2 final composition This first project required me to draw two kind of objects, each taken from nature and man-made before gathering the small drawings into one final composition. I chose to portray sugar a p p l e f r u i t s ( A n n o n a s q u a m o s a ) a n d a p u n c h e r.

From this task, I practiced my drawing skills, understanding on differences of viewing objects from different angles, as well as to observe shadows for rendering.

PSYCHO SELF-PORTRAIT MEDIA: OIL PASTEL I started this project with a study of my selected artist, Frida Kahlo. Of her 143 paintings, 55 are self-portraits which often incorporate symbolic portrayals of physical & psychological wounds in her life as painting is her medium of consolation. Her style of painting includes Realism, Symbolism and Surrealism with a touch of vibrant colors that was influenced by her Mexican culture as well as European.

For my self-portrait, I tried to relate with Frida and recall the happenings in my life. I imagined myself to be a princess living in a paradise with no worries. The 7 roses are symbolic for ups and downs phases I had encountered in my life and the sacred number of paradise. The eagle on my left shoulder represent the guardian of my soul, a brave and fearless character I aspire to have. The locket watch served as a reminder to look back at the past and brace through the hardships of life for my future.

ARCHITECTURAL COMPOSITITION MEDIA: PENCIL COLOUR We were given a task to compose a famous building into a poster by showcasing the plan, section, elevation a n d i t s u n i q u e c h a r a c t e r. T h e media was to be either water o r p e n c i l c o l o u r.

I experimented with brown tone pencil colour since Pantheon have an exceptional rustic properties. The highlight of this gigantic Roman building is the oculus which let the lights penetrate into the centre and produced interesting play of shadows.

For final project, we had a studio trip to Malacca H i s t o r i c a l C i t y. T h e t a s k is to track the heritage of Malacca as shown in its architecture by taking pictures, drawing and sketches with an option of either the Baba Nyonya shop houses or Dutch Quarters. My group decided to go with the traces of Dutch occupation. Our journey started from St. Paul’s Church atop of the hill and ended at St. Francis Xavier ’s Church.

MONOCHROMATIC DRAWING // RUMI Stairway to Heaven A special project in conjunction with Architectural Workshop 2009 RUMI, as we draw our own interpretation of the theme. My inspiration comes from a Jalaluddin Rumi’s quote which evokes the hope to pursue life by doing good deeds as if we are climbing towards Heaven.

“ In the world there are invisible ladders. Leading step by step to the summit of heaven A different ladder for every group, a different heaven for every path “ - Rumi

VISUAL FORM OF SPACE SPATIAL ORGANIZATION The studio was first assigned into smaller groups to observe and analyze the surrounding e l e m e n t s w i t h i n t h e c i t y o f K u a l a L u m p u r. With the help of sketches, we related and explain our observation by using basic design principles and architectural vocabularies, as explained in the book Form, Space & Order by D.K. Ching. The objective of this assignment is to expose and familiarise the students with the vocabularies.

Fireflies in The Garden

Here come real stars to fill the upper skies, And here on earth come emulating flies, That though they never equal stars in size, (And they were never really stars at heart) Achieve at times a very star-like start. Only, of course, they can't sustain the part. Robert Frost


basic motif

For project 1, we are to choose the best poem that reflects our passion, reflection and appreciation of nature. After much digesting and interpretation, we must abstract the keywords to derive one single basic motif or element that best portrayed the poem. From there on, we need to illustrate a composition which apply the motif derived from the poem, by using basic design elements.

ASYMMETR TRANSFORMATIO SOLID / VOI For Stage 2, we have to identify a unique DYNAMI motif within the stage 1 composition and

Material: transparent tube, wire, net


arrange a tactile textural sculpture. We are limited to the use of 3 different materials to experiment their qualities and properties. I choose to continue with monochrome and play around with the form. Tube and wire is used to create the sphere base, while net to convey extruded surfaces. Masking tape is used to soften and define the edges. The sculpture applied transformation of shapes and solid / void, making the form dynamic.

Mood Box For Project 3, we continued exploring ideas in creating spatial ambience in 3D Form. The spatial ‘box’ should represent chosen moods and spatial ambience through e x p l o r a t i o n o f s p a t i a l q u a l i t y, p a t t e r n s , textures, colours, lights, volumes etc. I chose to convey an ambience of GRAND as the poem mentioned “achieve at times a very star-like start”. The golden color represent the color of stars continued with the central pattern is the dominant feature. The wire used as the frame structure signifies the fleeting majestic moment and its fragility while the flowing enveloped form resembles the wings of fireflies.

LUMINA BLISS iHabitat – Observatory Space In Project 4, we continued exploring ideas of functional space within 3D form. Students are required to design a single functional space within the imaginary space of approximately 3m x 3 m x 3 m . M y c l i e n t i s D r . Te r r y L y n c h , a firefly expert and enthusiast. The function of the space is meant for observing fireflies by means of solar cells battery and manual paddling for lower noise.

Design concept

My Amusement Structure I n 4 th s e m e s t e r, t h e m a i n f o c u s i s o n a n t h r o p o m e t r i c a n d ergonomic studies. I was required to design an amusement structure with the client for this project is myself. The idea of amusement for me is doing things I like in a challenging yet peaceful environment. Since I love reading, the spaces are inspired and organized according to a typical book plot structure, starting from introduction, rising action, climax, falling action and resolution. Meanwhile, the secondary activities include climbing, sitting, sliding, laying, standing and reaching for shelves.
