The architecture of the built environment can now be experienced in both the physical and virtual worlds. We are living in a realm of the physical environment in which all parts of the built environment challenges our daily life. Today, people would also be said to live together in an immersive, collective and hyper-realistic virtual environment. How would these realities be made possible?
THE REALM challenges us to design the living reality by deﬁning architecture that would be able to address the real need of mankind; intelligence, emotional and spiritual. For instance, how would designers deliver architectural solutions that would be able to ﬁt as much as possible the targets of 17 goals of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals? How would THE REALM address the challenges of past themes; Social Architecture (2017), Space (2018), Architecture 4.0: Towards Building A Better Nation (2019) and Future City (2022)? ARCHITALENT 2023 invites all architecture students to explore the endless possibilities within the architectural knowledge base in the big data world that is so large, fast and complex. The ideal proposal must be critical of the reality of the built environment within the abstract sphere of inﬂuence, be it real or imagined. The domain of architecture; THE REALM shall be founded and created in the realization of an innovative environment for the people.

Expert Determination is one of the alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, in which an independent expert is appointed to provide a binding decision on a specific technical issue in dispute between two or more parties in the PAM Contract 2018. This process is often considered for use when the parties have reached an impasse in negotiations or when they want a faster and more cost-effective alternative to arbitration or litigation.
This course consists of a seminar and workshop providing the required knowledge for you to be an expert determiner.
This is a two-day training course: the first day is the introduction to Expert Determination (ExD), and the second day is a workshop with an assignment (for those who wish to be in the PAM ExD list upon passing the submitted assignment).
Please refer to the flyer for more details of the seminar and workshop.
