[14:58] Visitor: omg.. your housing design..
[14:59] Visitor: it brings shame to all architects
[14:59] Teoalida has joined the conversation
[14:59] Teoalida: more exactly?
[14:59] Teoalida: I am too good and make others feel in shame? or contrary
[14:59] Teoalida: I don’t understand
[14:59] Visitor: it is the most outdated, style-less architecture that i have seen
[15:00] Visitor: brings singapore to shame
[15:00] Teoalida: but look at comments
[15:00] Visitor: makes us look like a third world country
[15:00] Teoalida: comparing with singapore condos, maybe is outdated
[15:00] Teoalida: I admit that
[15:00] Teoalida: but people from other countries appreciate
[15:00] Visitor: yes if they are from indonesia or africa
[15:01] Teoalida: I was surprised when I was contacted by someone from Surbana… saying that is impressed
[15:01] Teoalida: ALSO take in consideration my age
[15:01] Visitor: because surbana is a horrible firm that specialises in building cheap buildings
[15:01] Teoalida: hmm…
[15:01] Visitor: yes it’s obvious that your sense of style is dated
[15:02] Teoalida: you look like someone born to criticize… well, what are good firms then?
[15:02] Visitor: i hate to criticise

[15:02] Visitor: it’s not that its bad architecture
[15:02] Visitor: its not architecture
[15:02] Visitor: its copy and paste from old styles in an ugly way
[15:02] Teoalida: in 2010 a british architect told me that my apartments looks like 1960s social housing
[15:03] Teoalida: but I really love sixties!
[15:03] Visitor: go back there and design something
[15:03] Teoalida: NOW don’t tell me that this one made in 2011 is outdated too! http://www.teoalida.com/design/Terrace-Modern-version-Semi-Detached.png
[15:04] Teoalida: Are you architect, developer, etc, and eventually working for a company bigger than Surbana?
[15:06] Visitor: yeah
[15:07] Visitor: just because you can use cad does not mean you are an architect
[15:07] Teoalida: Who said that I am architect?

[15:08] Teoalida: Indeed… experienced architects may hate me but they represent 1% of all people who give me comments
[15:08] Teoalida: how do you explain that some architects from India, Africa, etc contacted me to collaborate?
[15:08] Teoalida: and 1 from Malaysia
[15:09] Visitor: because they are also uneducated and without skill except construction
[15:09] Visitor: there is so much more to design
[15:09] Teoalida: I guess so
[15:09] Visitor: it is an art
[15:10] Visitor: and you are actually slowing down the cultural development of the entire human race by propagating this nonsense
[15:10] Teoalida: also, I never said that I intend to collaborate or compete with Singapore architects
[15:10] Visitor: whether you build this rubbish or not,
[15:10] Teoalida: I don’t see myself with low expectations but I admit that especially in Singapore, others are better than me. I have happy customers in third-world countries.
[15:10] Visitor: you are spreading this around
[15:11] Visitor: giving people the idea that this is good design
[15:11] Teoalida: can I know more exactly… which is most rubbish?

[15:11] Teoalida: and show me a better design
[15:11] Teoalida: btw, do you have any idea how old I am? by looking at website content?
[15:11] Visitor: how can you put rules for an ideal city on your website?!
[15:11] Visitor: what do you know about that
[15:12] Visitor: picking random areas for minimum room sizes based on trying to be more generous than standards
[15:12] Visitor: what if someone thinks that this is an expert and uses that?
[15:12] Teoalida: what is the problem there? I don’t understand
[15:12] Visitor: if anything, as the world becomes more dense, we need to live in smaller and smaller places
[15:12] Visitor: but you arent thinking about that
[15:13] Visitor: you are thinking of generating copious content and playing up your ego
[15:13] Teoalida: house sizes are GROWING in the world outside Singapore
[15:13] Visitor: meanwhile those who cannot afford are pushed into slums
[15:14] Visitor: or these growing houses are taking up all of nature
[15:14] Teoalida: and slums too… are growing in terms of size and sqm per person
[15:14] Teoalida: if not eliminated
[15:14] Teoalida: more and more countries start programmes of slum clearance
[15:15] Teoalida: can you give me an age?
[15:17] Visitor: i think you are 13
[15:17] Teoalida: OMG
[15:17] Teoalida: why there’s so many guesses around 30-40 years old?
[15:17] Teoalida: I am 24
[15:18] Teoalida: now show me anyone of THIS age able to do better than me
[15:18] Visitor: i am 24. i have designed an entire city. modern museums, high rises, award winning structures
[15:19] Visitor has left the conversation

[15:21] Teoalida: btw check this http://www.teoalida.com/offtopic/chat-2013-09-28/ … I want you opinion
[15:22] Teoalida: someone praising me after started a chat in a unprofessional way

    [15:02] Visitor: i hate to criticise

    yeah right, wasn’t it what you intend to do in the first place when you start the chat? LOL!!!

  2. spkgladys

    Hahaha… this one is a gem…

  3. bahn

    i agree with this singaporean. Tcuh, you are an embarassment calling yourself practicing architecture while all you do just goof around with a AutoCAD and you call those all design. 24 years old and dumb enough to claim yourself a prodigy and great in design. kill yourself please.

    1. Teoalida (site owner)

      You said over live chat that you’re working at DP Architects in Singapore… why you are so stupid to compare a major architecture company of Singapore with a person like me who never attended any university? But I have seen architects who finished university that aren’t smart enough to design themselves and ask help from me.
