PROJECT 02 : ‘Engage, PROVOKE, Inspire’

NARRATION:

CICLO INFINITO MEANS INFINITE CYCLE. DREAMS ARE LIKE REALITY WHICH KEEP REPEATING THE LIFESTYLE SUCH AS GO TO SCHOOL, WORK, AND SLEEP. EVERYONE WILL KEEP DOING OR CHALLENGE DIFFERENT TASK IN DAILY LIFE SAME AS DREAM AS WELL. THUS, MY PROPOSED CONCEPT OF MY MODEL WILL BE AN INFINITY.THE DESIGN INTENTION OF MY CONCEPTUAL MODEL IS TO MAKE A MECHANISM MODEL THAT CAN MOVE EITHER TO CONTINUE IN FORWARDS OR BACKWARDS JUST LIKE A WHEEL (OR OUR LIFE), IT ALSO REPRESENT INFINITE. FOR THIS MODEL, IT WAS INSPIRED BY MY DREAM. THERE IS A HOURGLASS WHICH ARE DIVIDED IN 2 DIFFERENT GEOMETRIC SHAPES, ASYMMETRICAL BALANCE. EACH OF GLASS HAVE DIFFERENT MEANING AND ELEMENTS, ONE SIDE IS MONOCHROME THERE IS A PAPER TWISTED MEANS OUR BRAIN, HOT GLUE GUN SURROUND THE TWISTED PAPER TRANSFORMED IT AS TRAPPED OR CONTROL. RED BUTTONS INSIDE THE HOURGLASS IS REPRESENT SOUL AND BLOOD THAT ALWAYS TRAPPED OUR DAILY LIFE WHEN WE ARE STRESS OR DEPRESS.  IN CONTRAST, THERE IS A HOURGLASS RICH OF COLOR WHICH MEANS FANTASY. THE VIOLET BEADS REPRESENTED A RELAX CONCEPT. THERE IS A COLORFUL WOOD STICK HAS THE REPETITION AND RHYTHM FLOW IT REPRESENT THE CREATIVITY. THE STANDS OF THE WHEEL WHICH IS THE MAIN SUPPORT FOR MY ENTIRE MODEL REPRESENT THE TREE, IN DEEPLY IS ABOUT HUMAN BEING, FAMILY AND FRIENDS WHICH ALWAYS ENCOURAGE TO MOVE FORWARDS WHEN WE FACE THE PROBLEM. OUTLOOK OF THE WHEEL WILL CONNECTED TO THE HOUR GLASS, IT WILL ROTATE TOGETHER AT THE SAME TIME WHICH REPRESENT THE TIME, ALWAYS CANNOT MANAGE IT BY TIME SUCH AS SPEND TIME WITH FAMILY,  DO WORK AND SO ON.

REFLECTION :

THIS ASSIGNMENT I NEED TO EXPLORE MORE WHAT KIND OF  MATERIALS IS SUITABLE TO USE FOR MY MODEL. I REALLY GET SUFFER WHEN I DO THIS MODEL DUE TO NOT SUITABLE MATERIALS I USED BEFORE, THE MECHANISM, THE MATERIALS WHICH IS DIFFICULT TO ME TO CUT, IT TAKING A LOT OF TIME TO CUT AND ALSO NEED TO THINK AND SOLVE THE PROBLEM ABOUT HOW TO PLACE THE HOURGLASS TO THE MIDDLE OF THE WHEELS. HOWEVER, I REALLY LIKE MY MODEL BECAUSE IT LOOKS AMAZING! IT IS ABLE TO MOVE! BUT I WON’T DO IT AGAIN ESPECIALLY WHEN TIME IS TOO SHORT TO ME TO MANAGE TO FINISH. I ONLY CAN SLEEP A FEW HOURS EVERYDAY BECAUSE OF THIS MODEL. SOMETIMES NOT EVEN SLEEP…YEA…I AM NOT ENOUGH TO SLEEP… THROUGH THIS PROJECT, I REALLY, TRULY  LEARNED A LOT, AND EXPERIENCE A LOT. SO, NEXT TIME JUST WORK SMART! HERE, I WANT TO THANKS TO MY FRIENDS, OTHERS AND ALSO LECTURER (MR IMRAM) WHO WAS HELPING ME FOR GIVING ME ENCOURAGE, KEPT EXPLAIN, DISCUSS, SOLVE THE PROBLEM AND SO ON! THANK YOU!

Reflection : 

From this project 1b I learn to be more observant for all the materials, space planning, air ventilation, water system and so on. My members and I keep watching the video to justify out how the floor plan and section look like. We have observe on water piping system of 2 buildings over there and how air ventilation flow. This project improve our knowledge to identity what issue we should solve in the aspect of space programming, water system and etc.

PROJECT 01a: Research: Site Context + Findings

Task: OBSERVE + EXAMINE
The site is both a limitation to design and provider of incredible opportunities. Every site
has its own physical attributes that comprised of memories and traces of its surroundings. The neighboring buildings, materials used, form, height and other physical characteristic
will affect and influence the design later on. In short, to understand your site is to find
‘clues’ that inform your design ideas. All these must be reflected from your study that will be in-group.

Duration & Marks: 4 Weeks – [Group 20% + Individual 10%]

REFLECTION : 

THROUGH THIS PROJECT, WE NEED TO EXPLORE AND OBSERVED JAO TIM AND SURROUNDING AREAS WITHIN 2 RADIUS KILOMETERS.THUS, I LEARNED TO BE MORE OBSERVE ON WHAT PEOPLE ARE DOING ALL THE TIMES, WHAT ARE THE ART AND CULTURE AROUND THAT AREAS, WHAT ARE THE FAMOUS FOOD OR DRINKS LOCAL PEOPLE OR TOURIST PREFER TO GO AND SO ON. BESIDE THAT, THERE ARE SOME UNSEEN PARTS THAT WE NEVER KNOW IF WE DO NOT WALK THAT PARTICULAR AREA OR DID RESEARCH ON THAT PLACES. THERE ARE BEGGAR, ROBBER, GANGSTER, PROSTITUTE ACTIVITIES AND ALL THE RUBBISH THAT HAS BAD SMELL AT ALLEY STREET.

LAST BUT NOT LEAST, I REALLY LIKE OUR GROUP TEAMWORK, EVERYONE ARE GIVING GOOD IDEAS AND WORK TOGETHER. THEY ARE COOPERATIVE AND HAD FUN WITH THIS PROJECT, SO MUCH LAUGH WHEN WE DO WORK TOGETHER. BUT AT THE SAME TIME, WE ARE TIRED BECAUSE WE SPENT A LOT OF TIME IN ORDER TO GET THIS PROJECT DONE SO WE WILL NOT BE MORE STRESS BEFORE WE TRAVEL TO PENANG FOR THE NEXT PROJECT 1B.

PROJECT 3: ART[LIVE] ESCAPADE

PROLOQUE
When people live in cities for a long period of time, the idea of leaving the hustle and bustle behind is either very appealing or totally unthinkable. Between crowded streets and overflowing public transport networks, life can be pretty hectic in the big cities. One of the main reasons that many people dream of getting away is because everything tends to move a lot slower. Being surrounded by nature and greenery has been proven to reduce the levels of stress and depression. Rather than waking up to the sounds of car horns, much more likely to wake up to birds singing. Compact Living; Lightweight; Space
Expression; Space Function

The ideas that form the basis of the project, seek to explore and reveal the issue of compact living. It has been about limited space, movement, distribution, and very much concerned about human comfort and adaptability. Its design will Identify and differentiate several functions of spaces through design. Furthermore, it is essential of accepting the human behavior and the psychology of space within the limited area.
The use of progressive materials should complement the sleek design and quality of design to this escapade dwelling for ‘smart living & working’ environment.
This is to incorporate the artist privately owned workplace in designated space established within the artist’s residence (home office) to conduct their business tasks on a regular basis.
TASK + CONSIDERATIONS
You are to design a combine space; a workplacewhere the end-user can work and live under thesame roof, with considerations on how to fit it all inand yet achieved good comfort. This task shall givean idea how to cope with small spaces; living in a
small space means to focus on good organizations well as design. The most important things to keeping mind are the functional needs, communal needs, personal needs, and privacy needs.Different combination of living are known by creating different plans of the space and using your creative mind to create multifunctional furniture.

The space given will be a two-20-footer shipping containers where you can configure the
layout according to the site. The location of the project is in located in between the Royal
Belum state park that you have identified earlier [location and its surroundings] to determine exactly how your ‘escapade living’ is placed. There are also some issues like how to survive and daily activities that need to be address before we can start with the design.

20-left2 X 12000mm [L] x 2400mm [W] x 2850mm [H]

The units will design on the ground/cantilever/attachment using lightweight materials for private
use as:
Double Occupancy; Temporary home & working spaces; A specific user/profession & environment

* You are allowed to utilize the “inbetween spaces” of the containers as well as being part of
the whole design ideas.

In exploration of the space, you are to acquire knowledge on the functions of the space then form, define space characteristics by functions, aesthetic and environmental considerations. Give an expression and emotions to the space derive from the keywords that you have obtain from the previous projects. Obtain information on space requirements and programming of spaces. Execute colour and graphical representation of ideas and proposal of the design project
