    Online Learning for Young Architects (with Vikas Pawar, Rethinking The Future/Eduwik) - S2E2

    Online learning is becoming increasingly relevant for young architects looking to improve their design and practice skills in architecture. As the gap between school and practice widens, e-course platforms such as Eduwik, Skillshare and Youtube become complementary ways to learn.  In this episode, I discuss with Vikas Pawar, founder of the global architecture platform Rethinking the Future and Eduwik (an e-course platform for young architects) about this opportunity and how we see education and practice of architecture progress in the next few years to come.

    EP7 - What is Social Architecture About? w/ Dr. Chong Keng Hua

    EP7 - What is Social Architecture About? w/ Dr. Chong Keng Hua

    In this audio-only exclusive, I had the privilege to jump in a chat with my Thesis mentor Dr. Chong Keng Hua, a Associate Professor in the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD) Architecture & Sustainable Design course, where I got to learn more about his inspirations for social architecture and how he has decided that it was his calling.

    In this episode:


    Why Keng Hua became passionate in working on Social Architecture projects
    His definition of social architecture
    Challenges and highlights of his projects
    Typical design process & research
    Why I really enjoyed learning about social architecture in SUTD, which was a course Keng Hua taught when I was a student
    My thesis project and about my current job scope at Surbana Jurong where I work on public housing projects in Singapore.
    How social architecture can play a role in public housing projects.
    The importance of having quantitative and qualitative data into architectural projects.
    The various ways I feel public housing design in Singapore is progressive and successful in supporting the lifestyles in Singapore.

    We also talked about the changing architectural education, a trend towards data-driven multi-disciplinary syllabus as seen in SUTD and why many other educational institutions are following suit.

    Keng Hua also shares his ideas for a vision-driven, practice-education hybrid approach - which I totally believe in.

    And I share about my struggles in architectural practice and I explain some reasons why I feel our young architects are feeling the stress at work.

    The Second Beginnings ebook that Keng Hua is referring to in this podcast can be found here at this website.
