This year’s theme for World Architecture Day (WAD) is ‘Culture – Architecture’.

Organising Chairman Ar. Chai Si Yong started things off in August with pre-Wad – a tee shirt design competition aimed at local high school students.This year the winner is Ms. Sara Wee from SMK Batu Lintang in Kuching; her design becomes the official tee-shirt for this year’s WAD events.

The main event however, is the competition for the design of an architectural installation based on this year’s theme. This event is open to college and university students from Sarawak with first stage submission via email which closed on 23 Sept 2013 with 21 entries received. First stage judging shortlisted 11 entries for actual construction of the designs for final judging on the 5th of October 2013.

The site of this year’s installation was at Tun Jugah which was graciously offered by the Linggi Foundation represented by Puan Melia Linggi.

On Saturday the 5th of October at 8:30 a.m., the shortlisted students were allowed to assemble their creations for judging at 2:30 that same day. This year’s judges were Puan Melia Linggi; Landscape architect, Ms Joanna Ling; Ar. Hubert Kueh, Mrs. Lai Yun Heong and Ar. Sia Peh Swee. They listened to the presentations of the 11 students and interviewed them on their design, material selection and interpretation of this year’s theme.

On the following Monday, the PAMSC WAD events were officially declared open by MBKS Mayor, Yang Berbahagia Dato’ James Chan who also presented the winners with their prizes.
