Architecture of the Mind, Heart and Gut

Fook Weng Chan, architect and urban designer, shows students several of his projects, some of the different types of houses he has designed. He encourages the audience to realize the importance of architects' heart, mind and gut in their creations, and comments on how he likes his work to reflect serenity, essence, edge and other basic elements, in order to create unique, dynamic and timeless places.

He concludes by advising to always put one's best effort and skills to ensure the endurance of the structures.
