Sri Rampai Pedestrian Bridge on designboom

The Sri Rampai Pedestrian Bridge spans across a busy dual-carriageway in a thriving residential and business neighbourhood of Wangsa Maju, to the east of Kuala Lumpur. It forms part of a wider redevelopment of the area that turned it into a vibrant self-contained township featuring housing, malls, shops and offices. This 110-meter-long bridge provides a safe pedestrian crossing between the main commercial areas and the LRT (light rapid train) station.

Our New Studio

 

We have recently completed a new studio designed by ourselves in Cyberjaya where spaces are conceived as a series of dark and light zones to suggest quiet and livelier collaborative working environments.  The main working studio has a layout that is light-filled and open, allowing everyone in the EJA family to sit together in a single tall space, creating a vibrant and efficient communicative environment.

Bamboo Playhouse at KLAF2017

The process of architecture is complex and at the building site is where ideas start to take shape under the impact of a complex handcrafted process. During the making of a building, the character of the project, its material presence and construction language start to emerge. For us, building construction is a reciprocal process – we feed information to help it take shape but we also learn from it. Our Bamboo Playhouse exhibit for KLAF2017 documents the complex and lengthy process of design and construction in a series of sketches, working models, site photos, mock-ups and reports.
