About Me


As you know, I am running the course Manifesto of Malaysian Architects this semester commencing March 28th 2017 . The course was devised by Dr Veronica Ng and essentially will use  her course material. which she has updated  I have come to the course too late to make wholesale changes. I am also new to on-line teaching although I did do a social science degree in the 1970s with the Open University which entailed watching TV programmes and subsequently submitting written assignments. I recall doing a Marxist inspired module entitled Patterns of Inequality which was very interesting mainly for spotting the subliminal mesagges injected by the course leader. 

The only way for the course to succed and for you to get anything out of it, is if you wholeheartedly enter into the spirit of enquiry - read every paper and comment thoughtfully. Then we can have a conversation in class. If you don't it will simply be me talking. As of today 16 students are on the class list. Please start reading the on-line material immediately and do it on a weekly basis. I will read your comments on line/

By week 2 I want to know what progress you are making with the case study of a selected architect.

I will tell you a little more about me but in the meantime you can look at my website www.robertpowell-architect.com
