"Being both an Architect and Artist is something that defines me uniquely as a creative person.
Playing both roles has been a challenging and yet exciting journey. Art encourages expressive creativity to present ideas in individualistic style. On the other hand, Architecture factors in considerations from research and logical influences before materialising into something creative and beneficial to users, society and environment.
Despite the mentioned differences, I find both Art and Architecture support and complement each other. They share similar design philosophy to achieve resonance in beauty, order and challenge our emotions. The boundaries between them can be blurred while not forgetting the spirit of craftsmanship and values we hold.
Regardless artworks or my design projects, I strive to create the "experience" - to bring the sense of belonging to the space; to create either a pause in time or a breathing space for one to think and to takeaway the experience.
I believe the sense of belonging is very important. The serenity it gives signified the beauty of being alive."
