Terrace Transformations in the Tropics

12 June 2021 | 10:00am – 12:00pm

Most terrace houses in Malaysia are dark internally and poorly ventilated. How then, given the constraints of the two party walls, can a mid-terrace house be better lighted and sunlight be brought into the interior while simultaneously excluding solar gain?

During this talk, Professor Robert Powell [designation, organisation] will discuss about the innovative design of a new generation of climatically appropriate terrace houses for the tropics.

Professor Robert Powell, Architect, City Planner, Author/Editor and Critic.

Concrete – The Tactility of Light and Shadow

28 April 2021 | 10:00am – 11:30am

There is no other material more globally used than concrete in architecture.

But have we fully exploited its potential? How can we contextualise concrete to be more culturally meaningful, yet sensitive to the local climate? In this session, we investigate the relationship between material as a craft and form as a spatial experience.
