The box has a notorious nature for which in accordance to Corbusier, the spirit is difficult to maintain yet in many instances students of the AA had once attempted to break away from the box in a celebrated fiesta of martial arts and wines and yet Mies and his other companions cum fans across generations from Phillip Johnson to Zaini Zainur had attempted to redefine the notion of the glass box, just to say that you can’t live with it and you can’t live without it.
In view of the spectrum of life from one end of birth to the other end of death in an ad infinitum dance of the cosmological orders of Samsara, Trinity, what ever one wants to call it, the Box does play an important role at least once in an entire person’s life; well just say the office cubicle? With the similar notion at hand, the kids are requested to design and build a Box of Habitation in accordance to the theme of Child play coupled with the other sub-themes of another installation competition, for detail refer to competition segment, which would have the potential to explore the pretext of architecture at a artifact scale to be employed in the building and urban scale concurrently.
With the kids in person, clad in their costumes and masks, verbally chanting their scripts with actions, within the context of the site, which is the school housed in a pseudo- bioclimaticbuilding of glass and concrete, from the basement to the classrooms and studios, out to the court, up to the roof top gardens of air-conditional compressor units platform, from noon to past midnight, witnessed by the 2 famous localized Siths® studio masters, the programme head whom happened to be the localized Master Yodah with a watchful eye scanning what the localizedSith® is up to without knowing what has been installed for himself and a visitor from RGUdisguised in a Caucasian body with a taste bud for Tomyam and Laksa, all make an event so drastic and revolutionary that some thought that it was a treason in another form that will weaken the status quo of the existing establishment from nasty e-mails from the Physical Resource Department to the Building Management for a ban in spray paintings and smoking and endless complaints from other lecturers who said that these kids spent too much time in the studio that they failed their tests and quizzes, these lecturers had given and needless to say Overtime Claims by the 2 localized Siths for whom the Master Yodah would say the school has no budget for these. Again, all for the sake of Architecture.
