Mediums : Drawing Architecture
by Hakym Hilmy, Lim Eu Jin, Jeffrey Lee, Kody Kato & Pamela Tan.
Duration : 6 August 2O17 (Sunday), 2-6.OOpm

 
“Mediums” brings together a group of architectural designers in a timeless dialogue examining the methods and aims of architectural representation. Here, we can witness how architectural representation techniques have advanced and evolved, from Eu Jin’s architectural comics, Jeff’s parametric designs, to Pamela’s 3D printed models and Kody's multi-disciplinary explorations. We also look at drawing as medium of group identity through the urbansketchwalk group, KLSKETCHNATION led by Hakym Hilmy.
 
Abstract:
Drawing in this case is not taken literally. Architecture representation is no longer bound to the canvas — plans and sections — but can be represented in other forms and styles, injected with the respective designer’s own flair. “Mediums” is just that, a showcase of different methods to explore, understand, and present an architectural project and idea. Drawing here is a technique, a strategy, and an approach of architectural storytelling with it’s own sense of clarity and depth to the designer’s thoughts, imagination and narratives. Their distinctive hallmark is the transmission of their ideas.
 
Aristide Antonas once said, "We understand the world as a communication process having to do with representation. Communication is not an impossible project; it means keeping important the process of representation while its meanings and rules remain impossible to get".
 
Ultimately, there is no limitation to the methods of exploring and delivering your architectural ideas and stories. These storytelling tools express the interaction of our minds, creative visions, and are part of the thought process of design. It is a gesture of drawing out and unfolding speculative thoughts and ideas and, it is pretty much limitless.

HERITAGE CONSERVATION TALK
AWARENESS ON THE IMPORTANCE OF HERITAGE
CONSERVATION IN MALAYSIA
by PAM Heritage Conservation Committee
Venue : KL Arch Gallery, 27 Jalan Raja, Dataran Merdeka
Duration : 5th August 2O17, 1O.OOam – 12.OOpm
Admission : FREE for PAM members; RM1O for non-members
 
Whether it’s conscious or not, wherever people go for vacation they gravitate to places or buildings that usually have a certain level of heritage to them, a combination of cultural and or historic significance. From the Pyramids to ancient temples, Houses of Parliament to pagodas, or old palaces to antique carved wooden houses; they each elicit a crucial sense of connection with humanity’s past, with our past. That is reason enough for conserving them. But there’s much, much more than meets the eye that necessitates heritage building conservation. Ar. Nadge Ariffin discusses these important aspects briefly but passionately, with a focus on Malaysia’s situation but drawing examples beginning from thousands of years ago and thousands of kilometres away.
 
Ar. Ahmad Najib "Nadge" Ariffin set up the Nusantara Academy of Development, Geocultures & Ethnolinguistics (NADGE) in 1990 and has been involved in research and dissemination of architectural heritage in cultural awareness and tourism development. His consultancy in these areas extend from works such as writing, lectures, workshops and exhibitions to design advisory for museums, hotel-resorts, cultural centres and such projects related to heritage, culture and tourism.
 
This event is organized by the PAM Heritage Conservation Committee and co-organised by KL Arch Gallery.
