We’ve heard it all before. Architectural Studio is one of the most unruly spaces ever given by the university to a student. If you think the daily studio is messy, wait till you see it 30minutes before the submission deadline.
But here we are, relooking at how studio spaces should be, and what it could be. Credits to those mentioned.

New semester, new pledge, new resolution. The Workbase Selection is now open for all students registered for Design Subjects this semester. However, there have been some changes in the Workbase system, particularly in the lower years. The Workbases now follow centralized coordination and no longer have a separate project brief as it was before.
This system is hoped to reintroduce the students to the core of architectural design during the lower years and only introduce them to specializations in the upper years (particularly at the Thesis level). Hence the selection criteria for this semester boils down to which workbase master the students prefer to work with.

Tindakan itu sedikit sebanyak menjadi punca kekurangan jumlah tenaga kerja profesional tersebut di negara ini dan jumlahnya tidak selari dengan keperluan negara yang sedang pesat membangun.
Menurut Timbalan Presiden Pertubuhan Arkitek Malaysia, Ar. Saifuddin Ahmad, negara ini melahirkan jumlah lulusan jurusan senibina yang berkualiti sehingga mendapat permintaan tinggi untuk mengisi pasaran kerja di luar negara.
“Kebanyakan lepasan universiti tempatan mencari peluang kerja di Singapura dan Timur Tengah. Malah, siswazah yang menuntut di luar negara juga cenderung untuk bekerja di sana berbanding balik ke Malaysia.
“Kekurangan tersebut turut ditambah dengan bilangan mereka yang lulus peperiksaan senibina tahap ketiga juga adalah kecil,” katanya selepas merasmikan Bengkel Senibina ke-23 anjuran penuntut senibina Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM) di sini, semalam.
Turut hadir, Dekan Fakulti Alam Bina UTM, Prof. Madya Dr. Ahmad Nazri Muhamad Ludin.
Program yang bermula kelmarin dan berakhir Jumaat ini mengetengahkan tema Terang 2011 menyaksikan penglibatan seramai 400 peserta daripada 21 institusi pengajian tinggi seluruh negara.
Saifuddin berkata, universiti tempatan juga melahirkan jumlah lulusan senibina yang sedikit jika dibandingkan dengan negara maju lain.
“Tetapi harus diingat bahawa biarpun jumlahnya sedikit, mereka adalah golongan yang berkualiti, cuma masalahnya adalah jumlahnya tidak mencukupi apatah lagi dengan pembangunan pesat yang dikecapi negara pada masa ini,” katanya.
Sementara itu, Ahmad Nazri berkata, setiap tahun UTM hanya melahirkan kira-kira 80 siswazah senibina.
Menurutnya, jumlah tersebut dikurangkan daripada 100 kepada 80 orang bagi menjaga kualiti graduan supaya sesuai dengan pasaran kerja dan selaras dengan kehendak negara dalam melahirkan modal insan kelas pertama.
