Design Thesis Studio : Heeren Interface by Cheong Gin Yong

Gin Yong’s final presentation was a mixed hand-drawn and CAD drawings. It was not an easy thesis topic but he managed to get the justification of the ‘elderly demographic’ in time to substantiate the main programs. The site was contentious (facing Stadhuys in Malacca at the other side of the river) but we soon put to rest the community versus tourist debate by backing the mainly community programs. The right balance was achieved. These were the days before counter gentrification where Gin Yong actually provided a very plausible program. The order and designing of space and volume was quite humane and some details were achieved.
