It’s the original site of the Theatre Royal in Newcastle, opened in 1788 which located at the south end of the Grainger town. It has been abandon in the early 1900s and now serves as a services backlane for it surrounding neighbours. This is done in the pursuit of recreating the past golden glory days of the site and rememberance of its history. My Proposal is to Introduce a Sound Institute which combines an Auditorium and other facilities which can reflect the past history of the old Theatre.

Concept: Connectivity Enhancement

Due to the late 19th century Barcelona Grid Plan, the famous textile factory at Poblenoue found itself in an odds geomatrical grid on the map of Barcelona. In this project, I was required to intervent and design a factory which open to visitors under a French art production company “La Machine� on this old historic fabric

Re: Application for RIBA Part 1 Year out Assistant Position I am currently a third year student of the BA (Hons) Architecture course at Newcastle University, United Kingdom and expect to graduate in July 2014. I am writing to apply for a 1-year placement within your organization. As part of the design studio, I designed different types of buildings; from a basic residential terrace house, to a Civic Centre public building in Tynemouth. During my three years at Newcastle, I have gained a better appreciation for building dimensions and functions, and an understanding of spaces, which will prove useful in my future endeavours. My first internship was with HOK in London, in 2013, which gave me a new perspective and understanding of architecture, as well as improving my verbal and written communication. I have returned to HOK to gain further work experience, several times during my school vacation periods, in my second and third year. Last summer, I had the opportunity to work in a small studio, Stassano Studio, in London. Throughout this period, I was involved in hotel planning, application preparation and a residential refurbishment. This gave me the chance to witness and understand building planning application processes, old-building conservation and the role of an on-site architect. I believe that I have enhanced my architecture software skills such as Revit, Photoshop, InDesign and Google Sketch-up. In addition, I gained a distinction in my second year portfolio presentation. In addition to my knowledge in AutoCAD, I also have experience in Revit during my internship experience and have been using and applying these new skills throughout the years of my architectural study. If given the opportunity to work in your office, I am confident that I can add value to the assigned tasks and participate as a team player. I am passionate about architecture and would appreciate any opportunity to further develop my career and experience. I can make myself available for an interview at your convenience. I look forward to hearing from you and thank you for your consideration.

Yours sinc sincerely, nc n cerely,

Szi Hang, Sia
