Design Studio 4 (Sneak Peak)

The end of semester is approaching. Alhamdulillah.
Here is a test render of an interior shot of my recent projects, a "productive landscape and an extended parkland of the existing botanical garden in Williamstown"; in short, a greenhouse.
Hopefully all goes well for the final on the 30th.
And goodluck to all peers as well! Moga niat kerana Allah SWT.

After that comes a bigger challenge; making use of the free time.

ps: Moga2 mereka yang telah pergi mengadapNya mendapat keredhaanNya. Semoga pemergian itu juga mengetuk hati kpd kita, ssungguhnya ia merupakan peringatan bg kita yang masih dipanjangkan umur.

Hari Kebangkitan

Surah Al Infitar 1-8.

إِذَا السَّمَاء انفَطَرَتْ
1. Apabila langit terbelah,

وَإِذَا الْكَوَاكِبُ انتَثَرَتْ
2. dan apabila bintang-bintang jatuh berserakan,

وَإِذَا الْبِحَارُ فُجِّرَتْ
3. dan apabila lautan menjadikan meluap,

وَإِذَا الْقُبُورُ بُعْثِرَتْ
4. dan apabila kuburan-kuburan dibongkar,

عَلِمَتْ نَفْسٌ مَّا قَدَّمَتْ وَأَخَّرَتْ
5. maka tiap-tiap jiwa akan mengetahui apa yang telah dikerjakan dan yang dilalaikannya.

يَا أَيُّهَا الْإِنسَانُ مَا غَرَّكَ بِرَبِّكَ الْكَرِيمِ
6. Hai manusia, apakah yang telah memperdayakan kamu (berbuat durhaka) terhadap Tuhanmu Yang Maha Pemurah.

الَّذِي خَلَقَكَ فَسَوَّاكَ فَعَدَلَكَ
7. Yang telah menciptakan kamu lalu menyempurnakan kejadianmu dan menjadikan (susunan tubuh)mu seimbang,

فِي أَيِّ صُورَةٍ مَّا شَاء رَكَّبَكَ
8. dalam bentuk apa saja yang Dia kehendaki, Dia menyusun tubuhmu.


Demi langit yang pasti terbuka,

Demi Allah yang menggenggam semesta,
Mengapa kita masih tuli dan alpa,
Jawablah dengan nilai insan yang tersisa.


PS: menanti post terbaru BTI

Defragmanting MyTime

"An architect knows something about everything. An engineer knows everything about one thing."

A quote taken from 101 Things I learned in Architecture School by Matthew Frederick.

It is true.

It never crossed my mind that I would be researching on different kind of plants and its growing nature. That is the job for horticulture blokes, I thought.

Never thought that i would be studying the technology behind water desalination using salt water.

And the changes that happens to the dynamics of the beach when the tides are coming in and out.

And also about the effects of climate change to the world; rising sea level, crop production affected, coastal development affected.

Not to mention the advent technology of fibre optics in harnessing light to bring natural light to indoor spaces. All these are the field of science, which i tried to evade from learning after SPM. I thought architecture was much more relaxing (which is not true).

But still, i need to research on them in order to inform my architecture for this semester. Come to think of it, it is really good. It feels great to know bits of pieces of information. It makes u know the world ure living in.

On the other hand, it is quite shameful to know all these infos while i have limited knowledge regarding Islam. So little time have i spent on reading Islamic books.

Life need to be balanced; the worldly things goes up, the hereafter things should go up as well.

I guess there is no other option. Im gonna need to "defrag" my time usage so that i can have more "free space" for extra time.

[defragmanting...easier said than done]

Oh. Btw, Eid Mubarak to all. Taqabballahu minna wa minkum.
Selamat Hari Raya Maaf Zahir Batin! kepada semua yang membaca. Saya minta maaf byk2. Sungguh.
