It is simple to convert an image into sketch outline with a simple Photoshop command. Just click 'Find Edges' under Filter will do. Before that, you might want to adjust your image contrast level stronger with "CTRL + L". How to convert an AutoCAD drawing into a presentable, sketchy ink effect outline image?

BIM versus Wiki: The Analogy

"Despite the fact that AEC professionals have been increasingly using modern communication media such as email, fax, audio conferencing, web conferencing, and so on, the majority of them are not satisfied with their collaboration experience (see the AECbytes article, Reinventing Collaboration across Internal and External Project Teams). Collaboration problems include issues such as delays receiving input, difficulty in quickly retrieving relevant information, difficulty interpreting feedback, or coordination issues. This is where the wiki platform can help. The fundamental concept of wiki and BIM is surprisingly very similar—both enable multiple individuals to access and modify the data and information stored in a single central location (see Figures 1 and 2 showing the BIM and wiki concept respectively). Wiki, however, operates on a more general set of data when compared to BIM and can readily address most of the communication problems faced by AEC professionals." to find oure more...

"This project was extremely well executed from concept to detail. The relationship to the ocean and site creates a humbling experience. The architecture does not try to upstage nature in anyway; the simple and clean lines reinforce the humble nature of the building that sits on the beach."

ZLG Design

Saturday, March 17, 2007

Zlg's new wordpress site.
"zlgdesign’s very own approach to design development processes in the organisation is a self-critique on their customised proto-typing and exploration techniques. Huat calls this design intelligence, revisited and built over many years to survive critical investigation and intellectual discourse on all levels of their work. They do away with adapting to or embracing mainstream typology in buildings but take their stance and follow artistic directions set down at the onset of the conceptual phase of design, minus the styling. They’ve always maintained and believe that their Architecture is about people, and never about style or about winning “beauty” contests, although they like competition. Their work embrace [and thereafter adopt and develop to maturity] whatever comes in the way of development of their designs, whether this makes sensible methodology or not. These processes are not ends but means to create something new, something unique, specific and exclusive to the Project. The Duyong project for instance, is definitely of the place, echoing the arts and culture of the fishing village of Trengganu." to find out more...

Bali Trip

Tuesday, March 06, 2007

Our long waited company trip is to Bali this year. We stayed in hotel padma for 3days 2 night.
My observation:-
Legend. You need to understand the legend to probe into the sculptural decorative architecture.
Wood details- main feature of architecture in Bali. The concrete are full of wood detail.
2d Patterns - flowers and plants are used as patterns into decoration, a language to express the nature.
Sculpture- sculpture of the legendary spirits are throughout the entire Bali.
The Barong Dance of Bali must be read and seen for further understanding of the culture.
Religion. Like most countries, religion is the strongest factor to architectural formation.
Landscape architecture- One of the most interesting session you cannot miss in Bali.
