The next design thesis studio

DSC_4183Brainstorming with the Head of Department, we sort of agree with the three design thesis studios that should cater for similar objectives set by UM School of Architecture. All studios need to answer the urban question, typological question and the thesis statement (design problem).

The Urban Atelier
Urban design > masterplanning
Issues on the demographics, urban decay, revitalisation
Example: Kota Kinabalu
Themes: water . adaptability . connectivity

The Environmental Studio
Environmental science > masterplanning
Issues on the environment, sustainability, green
Example: Kuala Lumpur
Themes: density . adaptability . habitat

The Experimental Workroom
Building design > masterplanning
Issues on the drawing techniques, construction technology, sociology
Example: Kuala Lumpur
Themes: tectonics . adaptability . art + architecture
