Students arrived on Friday, 09 March 2018 at 12.00 and went to EDL Euro straight away. EDL Euro is a HPL (High Pressure Laminate) company from Europe which provides a great quality product. They were greeted by Ms. Siaw Tiang and the team. The team then gave presentation and guided all the students around the showroom. The most interesting part was that the students had the chance to meet directly with the worker at the workshop, to see how they apply the HPL to plywood.

After visiting EDL, students went to WOHA Architects and Design Consultant to hear the presentation from one of the designers who apparently is Indonesian, Mr. Sofwan. The presentation was about planning and how to develop concept at WOHA, starting from research, survey until design development and details. They also highlighted green design and sustainable development on each of their projects.
