Whizdom 101’s architectural inspiration was sparked by a vision.  A vision of a place for the people, where the familiarity brings a comfort but the novelty raises curiosity.  A place with open piazzas for the indulgence of interaction yet intimate with alleyways and gardens for a personal retreat.  A place where the composition of meandering campus footpaths guides us to explore, to mingle and to discover.  Whizdom 101 was designed to create a sense of place where the individual could live, work and play in one’s own backyard and connect to a community that is free from the tensions of the bustling city that surround us.
This vision is exemplified in the small towns we experience today, where community is the strongest link among its inhabitants.  Every town has its first place, second place, and a third place, which is the home, the workplace and the retreat respectively.  The design is based on this model of a town where everything is connected, a complex that informally branches off into different zones such as the residential towers, the office zones, retail, shared working spaces, an auditorium, a suspended bike track, and most important of all, the Whizdom Park, a green open space for people to gather and connect.  The architectural design is not of the building complex itself, but the design of a community precinct that is inclusive, exciting and open to all - the great good place.
