With the design agenda being a school, I looked into the different personalities and characteristics of high school students.Assuch,Icametoaconclusionthattheycanmainly bedividedintoextrovertsandintroverts.However,research hadshownthattherearenosuchthingsaspurelyextroverts or introverts, as quoted by Carl Jung. There are many grey areas in between these two extreme. Hence, I came up with a spectrum of spaces named“spectrum of inclusivity”that are designed to accomodate students with personalities thatarewithinthegreyareaswithextrovertsandintrovertsas theextremeendsofthespectrum.Thespacesarethencombined in several ways and being incorporated into the programswithinthehighschool,namelytheclassrooms,common room, breakout spaces, library and the staffroom. Teenagers at this age in high school are trying to find their identityandpersonalityandoftentimestheyareautomaticallyderivedasintrovertsandextrovertsblatantlybasedon theirsurface-levelbehaviours.QuotingPaulMountjoy,“most of us are ambiverts by personality.Those who lean toward introversionandextroversionaresimplydisplayingdifferent learned,cultural,orreligioustypeofdevelopedbehaviours. ”Withthisproject,Iwouldliketotaketheadvantagetomake anattemptinadressingthismisconceptionthroughdesign.

PAVILION STUDIO AIR PROJECT THIRD YEAR PROJECT 1
This pavilion focuses on the social allegory that is taking place around the CERES Community Park whereitissurroundedbyelementsthatcontribute to the current climate change ordeal; residential areas,industrialparks,andmainroadwaysthatisin contrastwiththenaturalcontextofMerriâ€™sCreek. We believe that CERES is building a sustainable culture that would eventually spread out their influencefirstlyintheirsuburb,thenthroughoutto the whole state. As such, we wanted to take this opportunitytodesignashadingpavilionthatnot only complements CERESâ€™s site but their fundamental goals as an organization in representing their community. The HEXcube module represents a citizen of the community that is socially linked to their environment This highlights the fact that repercussionsandconsequencesdooccurwhen anindividualbehaveinanunsustainablemanner, causing a ripple effect in the society. 12

STUDIO WATER SECOND YEAR PROJECT 2 Site Plan
The design agenda was to design a boat house by using the design principles and architectural language of Le Corbusier.
Fenestrations UndulatingwindowsasseeninmonasterylaTourette is being applied to the design for north faรงade and the West and East facing internal faรงade as the windows is arranged in a way which resembles the motions and movementof waves which reflectsthe context of the site, which the faรงade is a mirror effect of the river bank which is right next to it besides allowingthemaximumpenetrationofsunlightthrough the long strip of windows.
Spiral Staircase The two vertical circulation used in the building is similar to the ones in Villa Savoye which is the spiral staircase and the ramp. Besides acting as a circulation path, it also brings out the architectural promenade of this building.
Roof Garden Roof top garden feature, the space in which people can commune and exchange. This is also a replacement of green space that was taken up by the boat house and returned with a higher value of space through design.
Promenade Therampfromthegroundfloortothefirstfloorwhichis located from both sides of the building provides architectural promenade as ones experience the change in height as one ascends or descend the ramp,enteringanarrowandsemi-enclosedarea,while atthesametimegetstohavedifferentviewsofthecity and the internal spaces such as boathouse storage and boat workshop as one progress along the ramp.
DREAMSCAPE of SECRET STUDIO EARTH SECOND YEAR PROJECT ONE
ThesiteanalysismainlyfocusonthelandformswhereIwasparticularlyinterestedin howtheseman-madecontoursactuallysimulatesanauthenticnaturalenvironment. I started sketching out flow lines of contours from three corners of the island on a map and noticed that these lines would converge to this area (circled in analysis diagram).This idea of convergence and man-made natural simulation led me to lookintomythemeofdesignwhichrelatestoDreamvsReality.Atightconflictthat displaces each phenomena from their comfort zone.
I derived the simple lines that denotes the arrangement of the staircases.
A dreamerâ€™s path is never linear, as such I added turns and intersections to simulate complexity in dreams.
Dreamsoftentimeschange scenes into totally different events. I aaded rooms through the staircases to represent the entrancetodifferentrealms.
Dreams can be resolved once understood.Iexpressedthatinthe form of a singular spiral staircase, sprouting out towards the sky. An enlightment.
