Assalamualaikum Warahmatullah Hita’ala Wabarakatuh
First and foremost I would like to introduce myself as an “actor” to this Built Environment subject. My name is Abdul Muin Bin Hj. Yusoff of 3rd year Quantity Survey student. As one of many Quantity Survey students, it is compulsory for me to take this course as it is the core subject by the HBP.
This is my own understanding based on the one quoted by Mr. Wan Burhanuddin bin Wan Abidin a.k.a WanB.
(This course bring in the students to the Built Environment throughout its production as a entire; in particular who's concerned, what's the theory following the production, how the environment is produced, what laws are connected and what are the forms of the built environment on altered scales together with human settlement such as villages, towns and more specifically housing areas.)
Again to continue my perceptive, I would say that I must rather open my eyes beyond limitation, and sees everything at creative way of looking at the situation. It is called seeing beyond what is visible to the eye. Now, there are those, of course, who do not share my perceptions, it's true.
I don’t know how to say this in proper way, but as for starter we’ve been introduced to get and built a free virtual sites where I can express my understandings captured by the Built Environment and Human Settlements lectures.
The work scope is to Design and build on my site the idea of PRODUCTION and I should explain it in detail the production of your construction.
Base on the Lecture 1 by Wan-B,
However, in any of those two cases, 6 basic elements are applied in creating built environment:-
1) Intention = an intention is an idea or plan of what you are going to do. Good or bad be put in thought and the decision is yours.
2) Act = When you act, you do something for a particular purpose. Act can be performed solo or incoraorated with other mambers. As long as the info on the INTENTION has been celarly been pass down to each of them. So that the intended product follow the main idea of INTENTION.
Act verbaly, non-verbal, physically or non -physical.
Leonardo Da Vinci's Vitruvian Man
3) Product = A product is something that is produced and sold in large quantities, often as a result of a manufacturing process. Considered as the result following the INTENTION + ACT + RULES + SITE by ACTOR = PRODUCT. If you say that someone or something is a product of a situation or process, you mean that the situation or process has had a significant effect in making them what they are.
4) Actor = us (ACTOR) and the "authority" (also actor, normally unseen although it may be obvious) which legitimises what we determine.
From what I recognize, I can tell the certain role played if the actor is us. It depends on what knowledge and expertise we are.
But not quite get it the role of the “authority”.
5) Rules = Rules are instructions that tell you what you are allowed to do and what you are not allowed to do. A rule is a statement telling people what they should do in order to achieve success or a benefit of some kind.
6) Site = A site is a piece of ground that is used for a particular purpose or where a particular thing happens.
ACTUALLY WanB have already pictured to us very cleary about the model of PRODUCTION. The Model from WanB is likethis one and I found it easier to understand when I look at this picture.
redirect the way of our thinking towards the PRODUCTION and all of the above.
Site (Scale of the Built Environment)
Object - the scale that we use to imagine, construct,and produce the product that are small.
Urban-errr...do we have an urban and regional planner here to teel me how tu use this scale?
Region - at govermental level whose do theplanning for certain region.
Global - used by Dr Sheikh Muzapphar / NASA
From what I understand
Spatial scale gives a "shorthand" figure for converse relative lengths, areas, distances and sizes. As a QUANTITY SURVEY wannabe I only use this scale.This is called as scale ruler. It scalemay be 1:10, 1:15, 1:25, 1;30, 1;50, 1;75, 1;100 1;150 and 1;300. The scale to be use is depend on the architectural or engineering drawings provided.
It is important to realize that these divisions are more or less arbitrary, and where, on this table, mega- is assigned global scope, it may only apply continentally or even regionally in other contexts. The interpretations of meso- and macro- must then be adjusted accordingly.
How about Microscopic scale?
U can see the germs and the baby germ.
What about Macroscopic?
U can see it with your naked eyes.
I think we are between here only. Our scale is important in order to develop our environmental construction.
While Telescopic maybe to refer to outer Global scale.
But we won't beusing this scale. It just for observation of the outer world phenomenon. Actually it was invented in the 10th and 11th centuries, during the Islamic Golden Age, Ibnu Sahal and Ibn al-Haytam made advances in the physical and mathematical understanding of optics that were essential to the development of spectacle quality lenses and the telescope.
I would like to express my deepest congratulation and wishing them all the best on their respectful achievement. This is the post-production of an advancement of beings from bad to good, from good to better and from better to the best.
To be Continue;
Commencement of the sensasional pace to the bright future.
The mass ceremony is launched from 13 August 2008 with the rehearsal and convocation briefing. All grads who are attending the Convocation Ceremony are required to be present during the rehearsal session in accordance with the above sche dule.
DSNLY? I could spell it, but couldn't pronounce it!
Let’s make this picture even bigger
Its 14th August 2008, Thursday. The weather is at its best today. The sun is so generous when it shine with the golden glimmer all day long. Thanks God. USM Convocation Ceremony is honoured with the presence of the D.Y.M.M. Tuanku Chancellor, His Highness the Raja of Perlis, Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin ibni Almarhum Tuanku Syed Putra Jamalullail, presiding the first session of the ceremony. It is a great fortunate for those who have their graduation on this blessed day.It was the day of the Honorary Degrees, Emeritus Professors, Doctors and Masters graduates to have their hands held within the grasp of His Highness as the highest symbolic of granting them with salute for their success in their study. Hopefully they will serve well in their further fulfilment especially for own nation, Malaysia. It is because we were proud to be the graduates of Universiti Sains Malaysia. And to Malaysia we serve.
