VALLEY IN THE SKY // programme_Regional Airport // category_Open Idea Competition // location_Senai // year_2019 Senai Skypark is designed as an expansion to the existing Senai International Airport which caters only domestic flights across West and East Malaysia. In order to make airport a destination for all, the proposed design aims to enhance the user experiences for both non-passenger and passenger by redefining airport as a gallery to showcase aircrafts. Therefore, the building took this dynamic form to maximise the vista of users and ensure the fluidity flow in the spaces to adapt the continuously changing aviation technology and human needs. It also offers vertical hierarchy, where privacy level increases as passenger travel downwards.

COWORKERS’ HIVE // programme_mix use (offices and retails) // category_ final thesis // location_Jalan Masjid India, Kuala Lumpur

Developed along the edge, Masjid India scape has more coarse grain and dense building blocks which diminished its only landmark, Masjid India, making the neighbourhood less permeable to public. Besides, monotonous business commercial activities at Masjid India limit users, discontinue its liveliness throughout the day and eventually threaten local trade and small businesses. Masjid India neighbourhood is suffering from poor vitality issue that affect its future sustainable development.

Prevailing Wind

The average temperature of Melacca is 25-30°C. February to April has the highest temperature, 32°C while Aug, Dec and Jan has the lowest temperature of 30°C.

Wind rose shows wind direction blowing from different direction in the total hours per year. North-northeast, Northeast and South has the most frequent wind. The average wind speed is below 19km/h or 5.27m/s (light wind).

Design Issues Solar Radiation

Radiant Heat from Bus

Highest solar radiation is between 12pm to 3pm due to the highest point of the solar arc, with solar radiation value of 400W/sqm. The average solar radiation during the day is 209 W/sqm.

Idling Diesel Transit Bus (13607.80 kg) at the bus platform with the power output of average 38 kW per hour.

Energy Efficiency

Emission from Bus and Vehicles

Typical electrical energy used in a transit hub lies around 100 GWh per year, which corresponds to the consumption of 30,000 households. Energy consumed by HVAC system can exceed 40% of total electrical energy.

Each litre of gasoline used produces 2.3kg of CO2 while each litre of diesel used produces 2.7 kg of CO2. Higher content of CO2 in the air will worsen the indoor air quality causing human discomfort.

Option 2

The absence of opening on the roof did not allow air to escape from building. The roof design has the most heat trapped between overhang and the surface of the roof.

Option 1

Without opening

Analysis

Option 3

The roof opening allow slight air movement in the building. rooms with openings at both ends allow cross ventilation in the space. However, heat absorb by the exterior wall is high and radiate into the building internal space. 30 ° roof angle trapped more heat beneath the overhang while allowing heat to escape more effectively

Analysis

The design of the roof adopted from traditional Melacca Malay House’s Rumah Ibu. With the highly pitched roof design, less heat is spotted to be radiate into building internal space. No heat is being trapped between overhang and roof surface as the wind speed at the surface of the roof is high. Hence, this design is adopted.

SCHOOL FOR SPECTRUM // programme_school and training center // location_Skudai, Johor // year_2017 Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a type of neurodevelopment disorder which affects not only the mental and emotion of an individual but also his learning ability and memory. It is a lifelong development difficulty that affect social interaction, communication, interests and behaviour of individuals. In Malaysia, the total number of ASD individual remain unclear as Autism is still categorized as one of the learning difficulties. However, the rate ASD was on the rise according to a study conducted by Ministry of Health in year of 2014. Autism community has long been established in Malaysia, yet it is still shadowed despite over 3 decades of hard works.

There are many training programmes available for children with autism. However, most of the autism center were set up in shophouses or landed house. Due to the limitations, the opportunity for autistic kids to be themselves is lacking and the ability to learn is often compromised. Although adult with autism are highly trained since young, the employment rate is low due to social discrimination and lack of social understanding. Therefore, the finding of this study will be a learning paradigm for all Autism Centers to reduce negative perceptions of public community. The study suggests to re-conceptualized Autism Centre through understanding of self needs & underlying potentials. The success of community-based intervention will therefore depend on engagements with public communities and carefully designed sensitization campaigns that reaches to the people.

A JOURNEY OF A POETRY // programme_Poetry // location_Genting Highland // year_2011 Inspired by the poem, An Irish Airman Foresees His Death, journey of life was expressed in a long-winded linear walkway with an inception of time to appreciate the beauty of time. Rotating timber frames of different sizes form a dynamic movement path with flexible motion. Along the path, holes are being punctuated into walls at different height to express the tough life of an airman, forming interesting shadows in the space. Viewing platforms are built at every turning point as resting point while enjoying amazing view of cliff symbolises changes of stages in life. Glass floor at the end of the walk suspends one life in the air giving a twist to the journey with reflections and inceptions.

Nor law, nor duty bade me fight, Nor public man, nor cheering crowds, A lonely impulse of delight Drove to this tumult in the clouds: I balanced all brought all to mind, The years to come seemed waste of breath, A waste of breath the years behind In balanced with this life, this death.

The hacking of arch openings creates vibration issue. Consequently, the strength of load bearing walls are weakened. In order to address this matter, a universal beam structure frame is installed internally for both storeys.

Window Panels Most of the existing window panels are damaged, they are replaced with new hard wood timber (Balau) to imitate the original design. Window panels that are still useable are cleaned before installing them at the reception wall.

Me e t The meeting room is a space that allows discussion and to brain storm ideas between people. The concept is to design a semi-private meeting room where it encourages people to be more focused and uninterrupted. Two different brick layouts are designed in a way that it creates an optic illusion as if they rotate to form a wave-like and movable curtain wall. Hollow spaces between each brick arrangement allows visual connectivity between inside and the outside. The curtain wall is tied to the second layer louvred glass window to maintain its strength and stability.

Stor age The storage space is an issue for the studio as both the landscape and architecture team are sharing the same space. The drawings and documents for past projects are often not organized due to lack of storage space for both teams. A solution for this is then to design an installation that works as a storage rack as well. By reusing leftover rebar, a full height shelving frames is welded in place to the bottom of the composite slab of the first floor.

CANOPY OF LIGHT 14 lines follow the 14 stripes on the national flag, which represent all the states of Malaysia. This in turn, is expressed in the 14 glass pillars of Malaysia square. The lines then branch out to form the hands of partnership between our two nations. These hands, like the trees of the rainforest, support then canopy above. A canopy which unites us all under one roof, one people partners in property. The green prism is symbolic of the unique biodiversity of the Malysian tropical rainforest. While the blue prism represents glass as the key element of the design. A material, born through a process transformation, just as the Malaysian people have. An ephemeral and transparent material, glass allows the sunlight to flow through the structure, giving the gift of life through energy. And energy becomes a central theme, as Malaysia square becomes the transition space between electric avenue and the Battersea Power Station.
