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 âš¾

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. 🙌

Project 2

Assignment 2 : Construction details and specifications

This project is designed to allow the demonstration of knowledge and understanding
of construction and application from prior projects. Emphasis in producing related
manual construction drawing detail and specification. Technical knowledge is viewed
as something separate from design. One of the aims of this assignment is to develop
an awareness and understanding of the strong inter-relationship between these two
areas of study.

Assignment 1: Experiencing Construction

In a group of five, we are supposed to select an ongoing construction project which visibly demonstrates Preliminaries work, Building foundation, Building structure, Staircase and Wall. Our selection should be a medium rise or low rise building not more than 4 story high.

Project 3: Weekend Lodging

This is an individual project, we are to design a Weekend Lodging at Kek Lok Tong, Ipoh. Weekend Lodging denotes ‘A place where one escapes for relaxation, recreation and vacation for a short period of time.’ This Weekend Lodging must function as
habitable architectural spaces to enable the activity associated with living, dining, showering, cooking, storage and such within the built up space of maximum 150 m2. The relationship between your design and the context is also important in making the Weekend Lodging unique to its landscape and activity.

Project 1: Famous Architects, Fabulous Houses – Diagrammatic Abstraction

In this project we are to be in a group of 6 to investigate how spaces are created from the making of architectural elements such as: architectonics solid, planes, lines and frames.
The idea of using pure and diagrammatic models to express the architectural idea would also be in cooperated into this assignment.
1. Ability to identify architects and their works
2. Ability to ‘diagram’ and analyse architectural work of selected architect
3. Understanding basic architectural compositions of solids, planes, lines and frames.
