The PAM Graduate Sub-Committee will be holding a Town Hall session on the 11th January as a preamble to an upcoming bridging programme to be held in February. Everyone is invited to join the session, including the non-practicing Graduates from other industry.

Bridging Programme

The purpose of the bridging programme is to create a platform for discussions between the senior and junior architects as together we explore pathways and roadmapping to a meaningful career in the various fields of architecture, its struggles, as well as to discuss new opportunities other than practice.

Designed as an immersive and introspective 1.5 day workshop, the highly interactive programme scopes into goal-setting, mindset change and through knowledge sharing activities scoping into the Hows and the Whys as increasingly more architecture graduates are opting out of the industry.

  1. The tentative 1.5 day programme will be formulated based on the feedback received from the townhall session.
  2. Proposed Architects to work with are Ar. Eleena Jamil and Ar. Lok Kuang Wooi, to be confirmed by end of January.
  3. 10 participants will be selected from the applications submitted

Both townhall and workshop will respectively, be moderated and led by Natasha MH, a creative communication specialist.
