Rushing to finish work in the office so that I can go to Bangkok with the PAM Committee; so here are more work related sketches. This building used to be the Sibu Municipal Council; recently re-adapted to become Sibu's Heritage Centre displaying artifacts relocated from the Dewan Suarah where they were half heartedly displayed in the undercroft of Sibu Town Hall.

As part of the conservation, we refurbished the adjacent park as well - making it into the Centre's entrance forecourt as well as pedestrian thoroughfare between two major roads. We added several sculptural outdoor elements such as the 'terrain' on the left of the pictures - a shaded timber platform that gives the park some (man-made) topography. It is designed to give the site an urban edge; a subtle demarcation of the Centre's boundaries.
