Malaysia Philharmonic Orchestra.

Yea.. I went to Malaysia philharmonic orchestra yesterday. This is my first time went to KLCC concert hall. Thank you Marc for the special seat.
In my first impression, the environment in the concert hall is surprisingly comfortable. The lighting effect on the ceiling create a romantic feel.
This time, the concert is conduct by Paul Goodwin with the flute soloist by Hitsto Dobrinov.
The whole programme consists of four classical songs which is Suite from Les Boreades, Flute Concerto in D minor, Suite from Semiramis and Symphony No. 99 in E flat.

The environment in the orchestra hall.
The handsome conductor.
Even though the songs are quite boring, but I'm really enjoy with the beauty of the sounds produce by the cello and flute.
The most interesting part of this concert is the timpani. The body language of the musician is really fantastic. Anyway, he has the most easy task in the whole concert.
For those who is interested for the classical music, this will be a great experience in KLCC.

Holcim Award

Sorry for no posting recently.
Finally, I came back from India. This is my incredible experience so far.
Anyway, I still waiting all the nice photo from my friends.
The story start from the Holcim competition.
The Holcim Foundation for Sustainable Construction was created to raise international awareness of the important role that architecture, engineering and construction have in helping to achieve a more sustainable future.

With this in mind, the Holcim Foundation’s primary objective has been to select and support a range of initiatives that extend beyond technical solutions to creating sustainable construction outcomes which embrace architectural excellence and enhanced quality of life.


Well..Chin Keng, Steven, Chee Seng, Tee Yau and I took part in the Holcim architecture sustainable construction competition in this April. We spend around 4 days to complete the whole project. Everything is worth when we received the e-mail from holcim.

We had been informed that our project is one of of the winning project and the most interesting part for this moment is that we have to go to India and received the award.
I was just like dreaming....
Thank you Ar. Hong. The mentor for tree savior.
Here is the website for our winning project.

謝安琪 囍帖街 LYRICS

作曲/編曲: Eric Kwok 作詞: 黃偉文

忘掉種過的花 重新的出發 放棄理想吧
別再看 塵封的喜帖 你正在要搬家
築得起 人應該接受 都有日倒下
其實沒有一種安穩快樂 永遠也不差

就似這一區 曾經稱得上 美滿甲天下
但霎眼 全街的單位 快要住滿烏鴉
好景不會每日常在 天梯不可只往上爬
愛的人 沒有一生一世嗎 大概不需要害怕

忘掉愛過的他 當初的喜帖金箔印著那位他
裱起婚紗照那道牆及一切美麗舊年華 明日同步拆下

忘掉有過的家 小餐枱沙發雪櫃及兩份紅茶
溫馨的光境不過借出到期拿回嗎 等不到下一代 是嗎

忘掉砌過的沙 回憶的堡壘 剎那已倒下
面對這 墳起的荒土 你註定學會瀟灑
階磚不會拒絕磨蝕 窗花不可幽禁落霞
有感情 就會一生一世嗎 又再惋惜有用嗎

忘掉愛過的他 當初的喜帖金箔印著那位他
裱起婚紗照那道牆及一切美麗舊年華 明日同步拆下

Rendering and rendering: Competition and freelance

I think I kisiao recently, non stop rendering and rendering-for competition and freelance..
Anyway, I still like it..maybe this is my destiny.
I think my first rendering is just too bad in term of resolution. i can't imagine the reaction of the client when he looks at this.

The model is something like this, and hopefully I stil have time to modify it and take part in the competition.
The most 'dulan' thing is that i have to wait for 10 hours in order to complete the rendering where I just left 2 hours to submit the drawing.

This is not the first time, rushing for the submission, but this time I just feel like heart attack...
Is time for me to take a rest, because our life is short..

Truth....University is just wasting time, wasting money..

If you want to get rich and famous, don't go to the university. It is just a provocation but the list of "15 successful entrepreneurs who didn’t need college" that a blogger compiled, is quite interesting: Mary Kay Ash (cosmetics), Richard Branson (Virgin brand), Coco Chanel (fashion designer), Simon Cowell (xecutive for Sony BMG), Michael Dell (Pc), Barry Diller (Fox Broadcasting Company), Walt Disney (animator), Debbi Fields (Mrs. Field’s Cookies), Henry Ford (auto making industry), Bill Gates (Microsoft), Milton Hershey (chocolate company), Steve Jobs (Apple), Rachel Ray (food industry), Ty Warner (owner, CEO, and Chairman of Ty, Inc.), Frank Lloyd Wright (architect).

In regard of Frank Lloyd Wright, he never attended high school and was admitted to the University of Wisconsin as a special student in 1885. He left the University two years later, without taking a degree. Even though he never graduated, in 1931 Frank and Olgivanna Lloyd Wright announced the plan to form their own school at Taliesin in Spring Green, Wisconsin to "Learn by Doing: "Education at Taliesin would emphasize painting, sculpture, music, drama, and dance "in their places as divisions of architecture." The school is prestigious and famous but I'm not so sure that F.L. Wright would have graduated there or to any other school. In 1955 he was granted an honorary Doctorate of Fine Arts from the University of Wisconsin


We can find another example in Italy. Carlo Scarpa, one of the most important architects of the twentieth century and a life-long interest in the organic architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, was not permitted to practice architecture because he was graduated from a non-professional program. His clients, associates, craftspersons called him "Professore," rather than "architetto."
One of the most famous contemporary architects, Tadao Ando, was deeply influenced by Scarpa's building, so sensitive to the changes of time, and by his profound understanding of materials. Tadao Ando, never graduated, worked as a truck driver and boxer prior before being architect.

MOdelling

I know that is a long time I dint write a post...Im damn busy with the assignment, presentation and studio.. But, there is one subject which is quite interesting for me..research on a Malay house.
Now, since my group members finished the drawings already, it is a great time for me to do a model. Some of the people will think that I was the crazy people to do this kind of model...
waste money, wasting time and wasting material..
Anyway, for me is fun, interesting and amazing..

First, what you have to do is prepare a transparent color paper and soft board..
(if you want to try la)...

Cut, paste and make sure all the works are neat.

Waiting for the inspiration.

The most difficult part of this model is I have to reduce the thickness of the soft board.
Nothing much, just be more patient..

Den Den Den Den

Look at the screen.,..,., OMG.. stil have a lot to go...
I spend one hour for each component...

This is the pelarai...this will be more crazy...I have to divide the thickness of the soft
board into 3 parts..

Here is the final product for the two components..
