ZXW SINGAPORE – BELIEF
Wong Zi Xin graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Masters of Architecture in 2012, having spent a pivotal half year in Kuching as an intern. She is currently working in her third year as a graduate architect in Singapore. She has a fondness for transient design – things that intervene into our daily lives and enriches it for a day, and if lucky, a lifetime.
She feels that everyone has the right to navigate through this world at their own pace, and their own way. In her talk, she examines one graduate architect’s growth and her creation of meaning in the practice of architecture, which in turn shapes one’s attitude in the making of architecture, and ultimately our attitude and intellectual growth as we navigate through this life.
