About Me

Creative Work Sketchup Model of Villa Mairea by Alvar Aalto with Lumion rendering

The model above took 2 weeks to model in sketchup, the model was very challenging to make as it involves many curved lines and intricate components. During the course of studying Alvar Aalto and modelling one of his famous architects, I have that buildings are more than just a shelter but a representation of one's personality that bridge together nature and mankind. 

Favourite Architecture: FallingWater by Frank Lloyd Wright

Fallingwater is a house designed in 1935 in southeast of Pittsburgh. The house was built over a waterfall. Although this house was built in 1935, it still gives out elements of modern architecture. I admire this work of Frank Lloyd Wright because it was one of many great architectures that showed transition between old and new architecture. This house gives me a serene energy as I yearn to create a beautiful architecture that merges nature and man-made into one. Moreover, the design is very neat and tidy, with a beautiful combination of different textures that flow well with the nature in the background. 

Something Beautiful: Peaceful waterfall 

Peaceful scenery has always attracted me since I was a child. I prefer nature over large city any day. I enjoy exploring untouched scenery and listening to the sound of waterfall. Sound of nature has always been my number way of calming my heart.
