Open Studio 2011

A peek into the life of an architecture student was offered to the public on the 21st and 28th of October 2011 when the doors of the NUS Architecture studios were opened for all.

Visitors began their visit to the first year studio and had a hand at recreating the first assignment given to architecture students- free hand line drawing.

Moving on to the vertical studios where second years and third years come together to use their skill in real life circumstances. This year, students were working on breathing new life into the railway tracks left behind by the trains that had ceased operation and on improving school life in 40spaces.

The second years show cased their bamboo works, a challenge to create a dome that needed to withstand the outdoor elements and a weight of 50kg.

Next, visitors explored the Masters of Landscape architecture studio, showcasing a whole new side of architecture that focuses on designing the environment around buildings rather than buildings themselves.

The tour summed up with a visit to the exhibition hall where third year projects on bird watching towers in Sungei Buloh were displayed.

If you missed your chance to visit us this year, fret not! Open Studios will be back next year! So expect more exciting programs and keep watching this space for regular updates on activities by TAS!

 

The Black Party 2011

The annual Black Party was held at SDE Exhibition Hall on 10 October 2011, 6pm. Approximately 200 staff and students from the Department of Architect graced the event, dressed in black. They were treated with delicious food and entertaining performances put up by their peers. Our tutors Mr Richard Ho, Mr Fong, Mr Ng San Son and Mr Florian Schaetz made the highlight of the event by their humorous and witty conversation on stage.

Photos of the event could be found at our FB album: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=oa.10150353896476842&type=1 

On behalf of the TAS executive committee, I want to thank all everyone for coming down for the event and making it a success. We promise to bring more exciting programs and activities to the Department of Architecture. Stay tuned for more =)
