ARCHITECTURE as a Thinking

Architecture is all about thinking. The more you think about the solutions of any architectural problem, the more architectural feelings you will get to design. Thinking depends upon the perception & perception gradually increases with experiences.

Just because of acquiring some personal opinion, we architects generally thought some quotes to define the architecture. Here my perspective & my personal quote is “Architecture is a Shadow”. For example, if we are in deep thinking, we get attached with it and when we realize some perspective, sun sets.

I believe that having a deep thinking in your design is important. For example, if I’m travelling and sitting on a window seat I see nature that I find exciting to look at, rather than rows of identical houses that vision makes me want to involve my thinking process in my design for people to enjoy. This thought influenced a design project which I completed working in my class. I want to involve my thinking in a building that would both stimulate its users as well as visitor. Architecture combines creativity and art with feelings cause architecture is mother of all subjects.

When I was in first year of architecture, I soon realized I can’t find satisfaction in the art of design. Then after some time I thought that without commitment, architecture can never be understood so I was expanding my knowledge of how the built environment affected our daily outcomes with others. From all the books, the Internet sites, movies and the programs, I’m gathering a clear understanding of architecture.

I enjoy taking the time to observe the buildings as well as the things around me, considering what it is I like or dislike about a building after I link my thoughts next to a drawing in my sketchbook. To improve my drawing and spatial skills I am regularly listening the others perspective to life, drawings & designs. I do travelling, which has given me an curious perception of the urban surroundings. This has made me think more about how we move through surroundings. I look forward to apply these experiences to a degree in architecture, while developing new skills and interests. I believe it would be a very interesting career to pursue.

I’m trying to be better than myself.
