On Saturday, 23/04/16, we had done our the fifth design course, Designing Building system : Logic & fallacies in Building System by structure.
In the design process, we should consider the buildings sytem parallel into our architectural design approach, “Building is a system” .
There are many things that we have to consider, consist of:
1. Architecture
2. Structure ; Foundation, sub structure, podium, tower
3. MEP ; ventilation / AC, water, vertical transportation, electrical, fire protection
4. Others; Landscape, civil engineering, interior, special lighting, facade, wind, QS/budgeting

With understanding the whole building system, we might think architectural practice in the deeper layers. Not only about the aesthetic factor that affect our design, but also the whole building system. The comprehensive knowledge for our knowledge will make us – the architects – more responsible to our design
