Building a catapult 

So we were given a assignment which is to build a catapult using recycle and found materials. So we came up with a sketch of the materials needed and our catapult.

Sketches of some materials we need. 🔨

The final sketch of our catapult ⚾

It took us about 3 days to build this catapult. Below are some pictures,

Work in progress.we first nailed the structure of the catapult and filled the gaps with some pictures glue.

After we finish building the catapult we decided to paint it with white and brown. 🎨

This was the day where we compete with students from other courses, to see which catapult could hit the boxes given. The range of out catapult to the boxes was 10m, unfortunately ours reached 6m only 😶. But we definitely enjoyed building it together. 🙌

Building Materials 

The purpose of this module is to strengthen our understanding on common building materials, their specific function and properties as well as the pro and cons of a certain material.

PROJECT 1

Students were required to work in groups to conduct a case study on a commercial building that they had chosen. My group chose to do Subway Serene Sales Gallery.

We work together as a group to complete all the boards

Taylor’s graduate capabilities that I had learned

Project 2: A Temporary Shelter

For this group project we are to explore and compare the relationship between the human body and design form. This project was divided into two stages, firstly we did some research on scale and proportion in relation to the human body (Anthropometry).

The whole development had been through a series of test and investigation which involves the making of several study models. For our final output we are to come out with a 1:1 scale model.

Photography Final project

My inspiration for my final project is the freedom to be free.

Here are some of my inspiration:

So here,s my final result. I had decided to use one of my course mates to be my model. This theme suits her really well because, not only she wants to be free, she’s also a nature lover. This photograph also gives you a feeling that you are close to nature.

FINALLY DONE WITH MY FINAL PROJECT….. IT WAS A GOOD EXPERIENCE FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND WHAT SPACE PLANNING IS ALL ABOUT. I STRUGGLED AT THE BEGINNING BECAUSE I HAD NO IDEA ON HOW TO CREATE AN URBAN LANDSCAPE. UNDER MY LECTURERS GUIDANCE, MY IDEAS STARTED TO DEVELOP I HAD ALSO LEARNED A LOT FROM THIS PARTICULAR MODULE. I AM VERY PROUD OF MY SELF.
