Design Thesis Studio: Adaptive Reuse for Urban Agriculture by Lai Choon Lim
The site for this project was surrounded by housing estates and offices. Do you need another furniture showroom? (See thumbnail pic of Viva Mall formally UE Plaza, 2017) In 2009, UE Mall was a forgotten and dilapidated mall, and Coon Lim decided to do some study of the needs of the area and came up with an adaptive reuse for urban agriculture design thesis. The thesis is very complex as it would entail a measured drawing and detail design that would need to prove the workability but conceptually it was a brilliant idea.
