Happy to be modelmaking again after a long pandemic-led hiatus. Here’s our first in a long time for a ‘cafe cum plant nursery’ scheme: a model made of balsa wood to represent bamboo, blue coloured elements denote steel work and laser-cut boards for perforated brickwork.
As part of our ‘About Making’ project, we produced a short film in collaboration with GarisPXL.Co, titled ‘Tukang‘ where three craftsmen – Adiguru Muhaimin Hasbollah, Elias Robani and Isma Sazali Rosti – talk about the process of building the traditional Malay timber house in Malaysia. These vernacular houses are a sophisticated form of rural domestic architecture consisting of rectangular volumes raised on stilts put together using an interlocking joinery technique known as tanggam.
A collaboration between @eleenajamilarchitect (Malaysia), Dr Stephen Knott, Abbe Fletcher & Dr Christoph Lueder (UK), different aspects of ‘making’ in art and architecture will be explored while carrying forward the materials and processes of traditional craft in a cross-cultural and cross-disciplinary mix.
Desa Mahkota School – one of our earliest built work – is featured in South Korea-based magazine CSFA REVIEW, Autumn 2021 No.06 edition published by CFSA (Creative Convergence Forum for School Architecture)
