Wentworth Architecture review, journal
Role: editor, graphic designer
Wentworth Architecture review is an independent, student-run publication that presents the rich culture of Wentworth’s design students within the Institute and the architectural community. Started in 2010, WAr publishes annually by a team of six to seven students. WAr team works with the architecture department to establish a theme for each issue, as a mean to curate the submission and go in depth with the dialogue regarding the subject in matter.
WAr Volume 4: Translation
The term is vague and interpretive. Within this issue, WAr questions the translation from idea to physical objects, two-dimensional drawings to tangible materials. The dialogue expands to discuss the discipline of architecture in relation to other disciplines.
The visual and branding identity of issue begins with the transformation of paper, from crumpled to flat, and vice versa. This physical act of transformation also entails the concept of evolving from one stage to the other, one interoperation to the other. This series of posters, then, translate into graphical devices that organize the content.

WAr Volume 5: What's the Matter?
The question interrogates a sense of purpose -or it could be just a casual small talk. Matter can be of meaning that resonates within us; it can be a physical matter that constructs our built environment. WAr V5 is interested in various definitions of matter, both physically and conceptually.
The identity of V5 is captured through a stop-motion clip of ink-drop into a glass of water. A drop of ink, -matter generates many different layers of effect that inspires the graphic representation for the journal.
