Seeing as an architectural project developed thorough a mind-set of being an [In-situ]ationist where it aims to be a ‘creative drivers’ to understand and achieve a conceptual force within an abandoned space or a Terrain Vague to find or create a new meaning that anchored strongly in its urban context. As an architectural proposal, the Seeing building provides and act as social activism to solve a social issue, in this case, to create a Community Centre and Halfway House as an in-between space to bridge the neglected part of the society (ex-convicted) to greater achievement. Through the concept of Gradual Level of Seeing in the aim to manipulate the spaces within the building through a device of For_Seeing.
