Title: “From Form to Formless”

Speaker: PATRICK KEANE│ ENTER ARCHITECTURE
Date: 19th January 2017 (Thursday)
Time: 6.30pm to 8.30pm
Venue: LR 423, SDE 3, Level 4, National University of Singapore.


“From Form to Formless”

ABSTRACT:

Enter Projects is a Sydney based design studio currently working Australia wide and in South East Asia. Sitting at the forefront of technologically aided design, they seek to further the culture of Architecture in both Australia and overseas. “From Form to Formless” expresses that a flexible conceptual approach can resonate on projects at many scales and eventuate in producing developed material finish.

The firm prides itself on a broad spectrum of work in both the residential and retail sectors. Digital processes will be discussed from clear inception right through to managing each unique construction process. Rigorous programmatic function and technical requirements will be described and how they shape the final outcomes in conjunction with the established idea/concept. The finished results are inherently fluid and formally dexterous and the lecture will describe the key elements of several projects.


ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Trained at Princeton University with a Masters in Architecture, Patrick Keane founder of Enter Architecture worked in New York for 12 years with many internationally recognized architects including Steven Holl and Peter Eisenman. In 2006 he returned to Australia to establish ‘EnterArchitecture’ with offices in Sydney and Perth. This enables the firm to provide extensive international experience combined with local knowledge.

Sitting at the forefront of technologically aided design, Enter seeks to further the culture of architecture in this country and overseas, producing projects of diverse scales with exceptionally high design integrity and material finish. By using cutting edge software to generate new and exciting building forms we are able to create architecture that is dynamic, expressive, and always engaged with its social and local environment.

Enter Architecture has carried out a number of single residential projects, mixed use housing and serviced apartments. The practice is currently designing a boutique residential project at Bondi Beach which is in its development stage. Enter Architecture strongly believes in the need to continuously investigate and develop our design philosophies by placing a high emphasis on sketches, physical models, and 3D investigations. This allows for the design process of each individual project to collectively and continually evolve and grow our understanding and explorations of space and form.

Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Mr. Tharman Shanmugaratnam on 30th October 2014 (then also the Minister of Finance) at the Inaugural Singapore Productivity and 20th Business Excellence Awards Ceremony said:

"…. as a country, we have to place much greater importance on continuous learning and the development of deep expertise, in every trade.” [READ MORE]

Singapore’s Chief Justice Sundaresh Menon, during the opening of the Legal Year 2016, made mention of a possible accreditation to recognise lawyers who have achieved excellence in selected areas of specialisation including construction practitioners, as Singapore strives to export its expertise across the region. A committee led by Justice Quentin Loh is currently looking into the viability of implementing this for construction lawyers as a pilot project.

SCL(S), as a follow-on from its highly successful Engineering 101 course (2010-2015), embarks on a new programme ‘Construction Expertise 101’ to provide an understanding and appreciation of the key disciplines in the Singapore construction industry. Conducted over 2 years, the programme will be conducted over 5 evening sessions per year with one discipline per session:

During the 1st year (2017), we cover the following disciplines:

  • Architecture
  • Land Surveying
  • Building Contracting
  • Quantity Surveying
  • Construction Claims Consultancy

Each evening session of 2 hours is intended to discuss and cover identical aspects of each discipline:

  • History of the profession/discipline
