On the 23rd until the 27th of February, the architecture degree graduates of 2012 from Taylor’s University hosted an exhibition showcasing their journey through 3 years of degree. It was held at the Warehouse Art Café Gallery in Jalan Tun H. S. Lee, nearby Petaling Street and Central Market. The concept of the whole exhibition was derived from the journey through the lives of students studying architecture. This exhibition acts as an outlet for expressing the students’ experiences through their strongest abilities, projects and the memories they have shared with each other throughout the 3 years degree.
An opening ceremony was held on the 23rd of February (Saturday) at 11am, in which many graciously attended, including the school’s dean; Mr. Tony Liew, deputy Dean; Dr. Veronica, fellow respected lecturers from the architecture school, classmates, seniors, juniors and friendly supporters of the event such as architecture students from UCSI, UiTM, UM and others. The event also garnered support from respected architects such as Ng Seksan, members of Alam Bina Sdn Bhd and Parenthesis.
The event showcased a diversity of work from each year of degree. Examples of Year 1 and 2 work displayed are designs of dwelling spaces and animal enclosures, abstract paintings and postcards, environmental sustainability design posters, models of visitor interpretive centres as well as site models of townships and cities. The architectural work from Year 3 however, exhibited the technical and graphic skills of the students as they presented sustainable and green urban designs for Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpur and also Little India, Klang. Other artistic displays include the Jellyfish Installation as well as a photo collection of other installations done by the students.
The event was a great success and was fully organized by the committee members of the exhibition, who also happen to be the graduating students from the class of 2012. Here’s hoping to have more architectural graduate exhibitions in the future!
