Mark Shaw created this 1:50 model of a project in Penang, Malaysia, as part of his diploma work at the Bartlett. The project is a centre that combines a spa and treatment areas with flexible spaces for hire as exhibition and conference spaces by day, which become post-clubbing hang-outs by night. It is located within the shell of a retained existing facade in the historic but decayed colonial quarter. Clubbers and business executives arrive by airship and can descend through the centre on ramps offering views of Penang. Shaw's tutors were C J Lim and Christine Hawley.
