I was Titus’s studio tutor for the last semester of his third year and there is no doubt that he has a precocious talent, was in my opinion easily the best student of his year and indeed is the best third year student that I have encountered while teaching at the University of Hong Kong over the past three years. He is gifted at generating complex form and is very interested in exploring what the actual experience of the spaces that he has created would be; in fact, he is more interested in the quality of the internal spaces than in sculpting the exterior form.

He is also accomplished at integrating a suitable structural concept into his design so that his final project was not just an abstract exercise in generating interesting space. Moreover, his structural solution did considerably inform the design especially for the first and most complex building of his final project.

Finally, his capacity for work and presentation skills is prodigious and I have no doubt that if his talents continue to grow with maturity that one day he should become an exceptional architect.

I have no hesitation in commending him to you.
