The Religious Traditional Architecture Measured Drawing & Model exhibition has ended successfully. We have recorded about 450 visitors from Malacca, other states of Malaysia and overseas. Majority of them were nearby residents and members of the local community.
Apart from showcasing the project outcomes of the Measured Drawing & Methods of Documentations module, this event was also an initiative of local community engagement for collaboration in cultural and heritage academic projects.
This event was organised by MASSA and the Malacca Chinese Assembly Hall, run by student committee (Tan Yang, Lim Merng Hong, Nicolas Lo Zhang Zhe, Tan Chin Werng, Wong Lieng Kam and Khoo Yung Keat), under the supervision and facilitation of lecturer Mr Koh Jing Hao.
Highlights of the program are as below.
Visit by students and teachers of the Chinese Society of Pay Fong Middle School
Students and teachers of the Chinese Society of Pay Fong Middle School visited our exhibition as part of their society activity. Our architecture students shared their experience in the measured drawing and model production while explaining interesting architectural features of the heritage buildings exhibited. It was wonderful for us to have had this opportunity to promote awareness in culture and heritage through engaging and fun sharing session.
Heritage Architecture Conservation Talk
It was a fantastic Saturday night as we had the honour to host Mr Tan Yeow Wooi of Tan Yeow Wooi Culture & Heritage Research Studio at our exhibition, sharing his experience in heritage architecture conservation projects. We believe everyone has benefited from listening to his presentation, particularly our architecture students.
We were so happy to see returning visitors who’ve been to last year’s exhibition.
It was great to see how the exhibition provided an opportunity for the local community to look at the buildings they see daily but never thought to appreciate their aesthetics and cultural meanings thoroughly.
Thank you so much to all our visitors for your support to make this exhibition a successful event. A big thanks to our hosts the Malacca Chinese Assembly Hall and Cheng Hoon Teng Temple for your support and warm hospitality.
