Back to (Passive) Social…

The past week had been an unusually social one since the third wave of the pandemic hit us in early July – had dinner with a few fellowship brothers on Tue, a friend’s brief studio visit and mom’s and sister’s bday dinner on Thu, and met a friend’s friend on Sat to introduce her to […]

Day Off

Took a day off to go see the winning entries of the GIFT Competition.  It was nice to see all the marvelous works of local talents, my entry was a bit of a joke in comparison. There was time to spare in the afternoon, I bought some supplies and eagerly went straight to the studio […]

Aftermath Of Competition

Started working from home again since my mother was injured early July.  And for the last week or so I even moved in to sleep in my home studio to focus on completing the submission for the architecture design competition.  Worked restlessly – there wasn’t a night I slept before 3am, and I even pulled […]

Site Study

Spent a casual afternoon at the HK Science and Technology Park to do a brief study of the site for the architectural design competition.  I really like the atmosphere there, it feels just like the huge campus I spent ~8 months in working as a junior researcher for what used to be Canada’s biggest technology […]
