Ar. Qhawarizmi Norhisham (AYDA Winner)

Ar. Qhawarizmi Norhisham is a firm believer in the continuous discipline of honing the craft of design thinking. He recurs to irony over honesty in architectural creation; always imagining the twisted, unintended and sometimes undesired consequences. Qhawarizmi currently runs his own practice, Qhawarizmi Architect and lectures at Taylor’s University.

He regards practice and academics equally as important in order to continue the discourse in both disciplines. His passion lies in design research, where he co-founded an architectural think tank, MDRXA (Manifesto of Design and Research in Experimental Architecture) back in 2011, focusing on developing and testing new ideas in design. Through support and collaboration, MDRXA has emerged as one of the notable names in the design competition scene accumulating over 30 prizes from both local and international platforms.

Ekahap Duangkaew (Ekar Architect)

A Chiang Mai native (Thailand), Ekaphap Duangkaew is the Founder of EKAR (2014-present) and co-founded NOTDS (none other than design studio) 2009-2014 with architectural design experiences in various typologies both public buildings and residential projects. The latter which embodies simple and clean form and space design are the focus for user experiences and lifestyle requirements. Ekaphap graduated in Architecture at Chiang Mai University, and he is now the principal of EKAR.

EKAR believes the architecture is originated from a perfect mixture of beautiful aesthetic senses and functional usabilities. Nature, society, culture, behavior, taste and time are reflected in a unique architectural work. Every piece of EKAR creation is like a research combining science and art together to bring out proper design efficiency, creating a sense of place which will lead to positive changes and expand to the whole society.
