ABSTRACT
PHOTO (COLOR): Can Penang tolerate and respect relics from different periods so that new and old things can stay in harmony for future contemplation? Mei was also greatly inspired by the fact that those people knew the structure of the building better than the architects. The concept that Mei wants to champion is simple: the architect may make the decision about everything that has to do with the building, but it is the user that chooses whether to buy into it or not.
