MAJOR ASSIGNMENT ( individual project ) :
Duration : Week 6 ~ 14

An urban infill nucleus will act as a new catalyst by
installing a new life, richness and humanity in the
existing urban structure. This will assist in reviving of
disserted historical cityscape to form a new focal
point for the city which would salvage and conserve
our heritage structure from the invasion and
destruction of the new unconsidered city expansion.

The insertion of a new public art gallery in the
existing urban fabric will introduce a new gathering
space to the people to express their thought through
art exhibition, debate and lectures. It will form a new
meeting place to exchange ideas for the betterment
of society and community as a whole; especially to
further enhance the existence and value for the
heritage conservation in this oldest urban framework
of Kuala Lumpur city.

In the final project , students will undertake the
spatial exploration sculpture and develop it into an
art gallery that will fill the gap site to form a new
urban nucleus for regeneration of the new focal point
to compliment to its neighborhood especially
between Petaling street and Jalan Sultan.
