‘In the Name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. By Time, indeed humanity is in a state of loss. Except those who believe and do righteous deeds, and (join together) in the mutual teaching of truth and in the mutual teaching of patience’ (Surah al-`Asr, 103:1-3)
"Professional Architect lives almost by faith. When called upon he can do the job without fear or favour. He possesses aspecialized skill and lives by a code of ethics cloaked in honour andintegrity. He is expected to speak his mind and give his views. Whenfaced with absolute wrong, he can resolutely disagree and walk away." quote from THE PROFESSIONAL MAN by Ar Dr Tan Loke Mun PRESIDENT PAM

I actually dont have any idea what to write for this work. However, I need to post it as part of my work documention on the project. This is the revised and more detail presentation drawing from the previous design development. Despite the least information that I know about the job, my involvement did provide a slice of knowledge to the plate.
I've learnt that even with a small retail outlet under a tight budget, you could introduce impressive design with cost efficient in mind. We could easily get away with big project to introduce a extravagant design that could transform your work portfolio to look empressive. When we go on a job interview, employers are usually easily and more impressed with bigs projects and high profiled candidates but look less on the small work that they did. Do the person has the same passion on any project that one worked on regardless of the size of the project?
Now, how about a small retail outlet? or maybe just a public toilet?...some might treat the small jobs as an insult but size does not matter in design (the fee does matter, haha). As true designers, we should be willing to design anything with a great idea in mind, passion of beauty and perfection at all times. Remember the architects that had even designed a chair?...remember who?

Visit : RGP have an innovative approach to architectural design. We have no dogma, no standard answers and we are spirited and fun to work with.
