The purpose of this blog is to document and follow my educational progression in the field of architecture. It was first set up in 2011 as a tool to share my experience on the MSc Architectural Technology and later on the Master of Architecture at NTU. The content and purpose has constantly evolved over the years and it is now a tool to assist my registration as an architect through the RIBA Studio Certificate.

As I mentioned briefly in the previous post the idea of recovering materials created by man from the sea and doing something creative with those materials is something I find very appealing. The sea chair created by studio swine should be created at a larger scale and is something that may be integrated into my Design Thesis. The images below were produced by Studio Swine and show the materials and furnace used to create the chair. The severity of damage caused by plastic in the sea is continuously increasing with the current figure of 46,000 pieces of plastic per square kilometer set to double in the next 10 years.
