I am pursuing architecture as a profession because I see it as a career path where the two meet. Alvar Aalto said, “Building art is a synthesis of life in materialised form. We should try to bring in under the same hat not a splintered way of thinking, but all in harmony together.” The desire to make the world a better place for people to live in has been the greatest influence in my pursuit of architecture as a profession.
Since my childhood, I have been attracted to the distinctive national identity of a building style. A house, for example, can be indicative of a people, the time it was built, and the way a particular society functions. From my perspective, a home or building is a projection of so much more than bricks and mortar; it is the capsule in which people live, work, and socialise. It is also a record of how we organise and live our lives. As a designer, I constantly find myself pondering ways to make people’s lives better, both aesthetically and practically.
As a result, I chose to study Architecture. Now I become a qualified architect, and all I know is that, there is still so much to learn. I am highly interested in improving myself in the areas of Architectural Design, Urban and sustainable architecture. After completion of this course I will return to my home country to design low-cost housing for low in-come population.
