Working with students

These happy shiny people are interns from UPM (a local University)- with their boundless energy; they were involved in formulation of the brief, gathering information from the client....
....initial concept drawings, model-making and presentation of the design solution to the client.
Quick sketches to help the students with model making.
The model demonstrates the design solution in a clear manner; the provision of maximum floor space within a dramatic sweeping form.
We decided that the roof should be pleated with slits in between the folds to allow natural light to enter the building.
...and the slits continue down the side of building; visually the folds emphasise the building's radiating form.

Although this project has not proceeded beyond this point, it is still a success - as the students have gone through an important architectural process...and added to their project portfolio.
