CANBERRA SITE VISIT

blogged by Olivia Shih

161023-0001Facet Studio team visited the site for a new project at Canberra.

 

We felt it is important that everyone in the team can understand the site in flesh, feel more involvement / ownership towards the project and hence contribute more meaningfully towards the design, so we decided to close the office for the day and did this little office trip to the Capital City.

 

Fitout construction is to commence around April 2017 – counting back from that we really don’t have that much time to design / document / apply authority permission… especially when it is at a new place for new adventure.

 

Now get to work!

TAIWAN LECTURE

blogged by Olivia Shih

160506_001I have had the unique opportunity to deliver a lecture at Kaohsiung Taiwan, organised by Kaohsiung Architects Association and The Real Estate Development Association of Kaohsiung.

 

Taiwan is facing a lot of challenges – environmentally, politically, educationally.. to name a few – like all countries in its maturing process.

 

Being a Taiwanese, to be able to contribute the philosophy and thinking behind our design to the fellow building industry professionals in Taiwan, was something I have always had on my mind.

 

I sincerely hope this is the beginning of a long term collaboration!

In the process of preparing for this 90 mins lecture, we have revised our approach and have come to new realisations of our thinking, which is something precious for us.
