Issue Derivation

Unemployment Rate in Malaysia decreased to 3 percent in March of 2015 from 3.20 percent in February of 2015. Unemployment Rate in Malaysia averaged 3.26 percent from 1998 until 2015, reaching an all time high of 4.50 percent in March of 1999 and a record low of 2.70 percent in August of 2012. Unemployment Rate in Malaysia is reported by the Department of Statistics Malaysia. “70% of local public university graduates unemployed’ - That almost a national emergency’. Graduates attitudes by becoming to timid and afraid to show their courage as a leader has become one of the main reason of the unemployment rate increasing. Another is when the graduates is lack of working skills and ability to get their job done and achieve what the client or the boss expectation. An unemployment rate is base from a curtain degree of capability in thinking, doing, and developing. By those elements, the rate of unemployment is reduced thus bring interest in employee. Computer science development should be the most integrated in the midst of developing technology in current era. Thus the issue to bring out is to create a space that develop students mindset and developing ahead by their softskills, fundamental technical skills and building up the charisma to inspire others.

After that, water in the tank will supply water to the entire building.

Water and Electrical Riser The water and electrical is supplied through the entire building from ground floor to top floor is through riser that located at stair core. There are two water and electrical riser are provided.

basic uses of water

Suction Tank The suction tank that are located at the ground level are the first water catchment tank to supply to the water tank The water supply is very important to human. The hub design need to provide with good water supply and need to deliver the water to any place through a proper water supply system.

TNB substation

electrical system

The electrical system also important in building design to make sure that the building can operate well. So, the hub design should be design with good electrical layout. The genset room is not provided as TNB substation is located beside the site.

Escape x Exotic Urban Infill Escape had been use as the concept for this restaurant. It is an escape for those who works overload in an urban context, a hectic culture. An escape is to provide a space for those who in need the most base on the levels of the needs for privacy. The targeted client is for the students, employee around central market, businessman that need a private area for lunch meeting. The concept escape is highly relating with the keyword Exotic to conclude, as exotic means the desireable, something thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a must. You have to work harder to own the best view and the best service aside from the foods serve.

Brief For this project, students will have the oppurtunity to design a restaurant of a selected shop lot of a given site. This is an individual project where each student is to select a specific type of food of an ethnicity. The image, cncept and design of the restaurant have to reflect the type of food and/or the ethnicity that the student chooses. Special attentions needs to be given on the space organization, quality of spaces and functions. Apart form that, choices of materials, color schemes and basic construction technology should be included to best represent the image of the restaurant.

Pasar Seni Kuala Lumpur The Kuala Lumpur Central Market, also known as Pasar Seni, is a centre for Malaysian culture, arts and crafts. It is a place where all the handicrafts from all sorts of races is being promoted to the tourist and visitor. The Cenrtal Market dates back to 1888 and used as an open wet market for the people in Kuala Lumpur. Later when the open market continued to expand, a permanent structure was built to house all vendors. By the 1930s, the permanent structure was further improvised to have the current size and art

Precedent Studies

Urban infill is very different compared to stand alone or a stall on a beach. To give the sensation by designing the restaurant as the customer is in somewhere else that is not in an urban context.

Giving authentic scent cuisine. A different kind of taste for each customer. Like blindfolded and given a taste of delicacies. Study shows that while blindfolding a person to taste or touch or hear something, it brings out the greater taste of the cuisine. A surprising effect and an exotic way to eat apart of eat like the usuals.

A simple and fast deliveries. To serve and deliver faster give the restaurant a greater impression. Conveyer is used to make sure the foods is delivered in a convincing manner, where people can have a look at everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s order. Give more varieties of choices.

Brings out the best of the best from what the locals have to give. An example is Durian. The king of fruit, which somehow gives a very different persona for someone whoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never tried one. Just from the smell itself.

Base on the multi ethenicity and culture in central market, it gives a similarity towards the multiflavour of malaysian foods. Thus, the restaurant is to be an exotic malaysian restaurant as it only sells which we wanted most when we come to a city if weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re from the village. As what is most wanted by the tourist that came to Malaysia that says to be a food heaven, The restaurant is to be a compilation of those exotic foods to be sell by sets which is Tribal Sets

Concept Statement

To ease the client’s movement to escape from any unexpected danger and enemy that may occured at anytime without being realized and ease him pursuing his own business.




hajime castle using merely more on the circulation to avoid direct enemy to reach the castle

using the same concept of a maze on how to make someone being lost

as the ability of a chameleon to camouflage to be visible from others is also important for the client to escape anytime

• Lengthen the entrance • Gives time to escape • From other route

• Purposely done to give time for the client to escape during the period of enemy • Mostly done by arrangement of space

• To blend with the surrounding • Camouflage through spaces, profession, and circulation

Design Process

Bubble Diagrams Begins with the inception of being passive and active which is same as yin and yang. to esape from anything, this is merely whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to defy in much stronger terms. Example; to escape from someone bigger in size is best either being passive or active. it depends on how we dealt with it. In mutual characteristics is what to show to other people and better not to be shown. a spy and an event manager works the same. whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to stay hidden, and what is shown. I work out on it by observing the reality of common perspective of hidden path (backlane road) and main path (main road).

Design Process

More usable area by vehicle and public. - Seems much busier and more scenes happening. - More view of surrounding. - Indicate as major circulation area.

Rarely used by vehicle and public. - More worrying (cause by the rate of crime in a big city). - Less view of surrounding. - Indicate as minor circulation area. blue- main road green- backlane road

Design Process

1. From the masterplan circulation 2. Transfered to 1:25 plan of site 3. Main road (circulation) becomes the area for main access/public rooms 4. Backlane (circulation) becomes the hidden passages/ secret walkway ( Private & Confidential Area )

MIXED MIxed Projects A compilation of first year project. Our practices require us to use handskill without usage of computer to soften and improve our creative thinking. To improve the understanding on architectural language and its literature. We are required to focus on comparative formation base on analysis of precedent studies, basic contextual appraisal and site exploration. Fundamental principles relating to function, form and space to be emphasized. Addressing concepts, architectural functions, and spatial organization. a small simple structure with integrated knowledge of environmental science and construction.

Tropical Retreat / Hideout Passive Design x Timber Construction Third semester project tropical retreat/hideout emphasize the study on antrhopometric and ergonomics in the design. consideration of using passive design strategies and timber construction. Study of habitable space cater for 2 foreigners to experience and appreciate hot and humid climate of the tropical climate set in janda baik.

Design concept derived from the idea of a plane simulator that provide an experience to the user of having the real situation even from inside of the simulator. an approach or concept of natural simulator is to gives the foreigners to experience the climate in janda baik. Design derived overall from the site itself. through the site context for the most appropriate and suitable spacing and organization. create the environment of relaxing, ergonomic, and have an enjoyable view. The organization is derived from the shape of the site (river and contour), the form that create the facade and ambience of interior spaces is derived from a group of rocks on site that provide balance number for the framing system to be done.

Encroaching “Go beyond what is right or natural / Intrude. “ Encroaching may be labelled as “Cultural Imperialisme“. Encroachment by design means that this may be partly considered as a special case of encroachment by the mass media. It involves the dissemination of fashionable images designed to display products (clothing, decor, architecture, etc.) of more traditional design.

Project 2 - 1003 Second semester project is of spatial exploration of a 1003mm volume through considered acts of manipulation of : solids, voids, planes, edges, openings and points. The aim of the project is to generate form and space through various methods of architectural drawing and making models with the emphasis on exploring the idea of the crafted space.

Flat Pack ( Movement & Manipulation ) Jumping Horse Eyes, nose, mouth and ears of a horse shows that the creature itself is unique on its own to have different features. For an example, a horse’s ears is large and pointed ears that can capture sound wave from any direction or how it affected by the horse’s mood. When curious / interested, ears angled forward. As in for this study, I’ve decided to do a research and through study on the horse’s movement when it is jumping. Which included in these 5 phase Approach Take-Off Flight / Suspension / Airborne Phase Landing Recovery / Getaway An x-ray of the horse jumping is traced and studied throughly. Within many layers overlapped to find a simpler form. As the x-ray is studied via the positioning of the switch bones such as the knee bones. Every movement have it’s own core to start with.

The urban Malay village in Kuala Lumpur known as Kampung Baru (KB) is unique place where the settlement of country located in the middle of a busy urban metropolitan capital Malaysia next to the skyscraper of PETRONAS Twin Tower. Comprising diverse local and foreign residents as well as varied land use activities with low rise development, KB is well known place which preserved the Malay lifestyle in urban areas. The pressure of urbanization from the surrounding areas has force KB to be shaped to meet the current and future urban challenges.
