Extra As architects we are continually revamping the surface of the planet so it fits better to the way we need to live. I feel the need to become more than just a designer of three dimensional architectural objects, the need to become a designer of ecosystems, systems of both ecology and economy. The excellence of architecture is that it has the potential to move, while it stands still. I look for advancement and appreciation, the chance to make architecture move individuals. Christopher Wren once said, 'Architecture aims at eternity'.
“If you focus on the design, you can call yourself a Designer and if you focus on the implementation of your design, you can call yourself as an Architect.” - Cameron Sinclair Architecture for me is an art of designing buildings and creating a space that can change the way of living. I belong to a place where Architecture was just a word for over a decade as compared to the present conditions. Being a small town boy, whenever I used to go out for vacations to visit my relatives in Mumbai (India), I was always mesmerized and fascinated with tall buildings, glass facades and their shapes. Since I was always good at creative thinking, I felt closure to building forms and their architecture. I wandered what I could do if I 'm handed the magic wand and asked to design a masterpiece, which inspired me to choose architecture as my course.
I felt as though this was what I to wanted do, present drawings and artworks on houses that symbolize ‘human personas’, particularly those I have encountered. I therefore decided to call my project Blocks Of Society. Process During my process I struggled impersonating these personas in forms of modern houses. And after sometime of battling with this concept I had to go back to the drawing board and look at how these houses are created and how they are constructed. By doing so I looked deeper into the history of modern architect and the architects intention when designing such a houses.
Nayan Patel MS Construction Management Statement of Purpose The progress of any country is dependent on a good infrastructure of roads, bridges, railways, airports and other such other cost intensive facilities. Coming from a family whose chief business is construction; I was acquainted with Civil Engineering activities since my childhood and also understood how the field contributed to nation building. I would go to construction sites and seeing a building rise from nothing more than a foundation pit to a highly sophisticated structure always thrilled me. The impact of Civil Engineering on common man’s life and the diversity of work, only added to my inspiration to
On dismantling these devices, I was amazed by the several devices inside. When I was studying in my 10th grade, we were given a task to undertake a mini project, that’s when I made a simple fire alarm using a heat sensor and a couple of transistors and diodes. Later on, I figured out that hardware had several limitations that only programming could overcome. With almost every small task of this world performed through programmed devices and the fast-paced innovations inspired me to delve deeper and gain more knowledge through research. I did not want to compromise with my admiration but this ardent interest lets me pursue my passion of becoming an Engineer.
The urge to make a difference in people’s lives never left and the more I discovered about the world the more I was driven. By compiling my talents and passion together I was able to discover what my purpose in life is. I want to alleviate and solve many difficulties in various communities and I strongly believe that architecture is the pathway to take. It is not only something that I’m passionate about but it also fulfils my purpose in life. Architects see the world in a different perspective, they are able to spot and opportunity and take it.
Moving from India to United Arab Emirates for my schooling made me to experience the innumerable kind of spaces. The dynamism and the vigor in the design made me to feel the diversity of spaces over the years I have been through. This triggered my interest in architecture and I knew that architecture would be part of my life. As my sister was preparing for National Aptitude test for architecture, the study was more of my interest. To be frank, I was an average student in school but I was one of the top scorer in the National Aptitude Test for Architecture exam, thus giving me an enhancement to learn more about a subject which I like and thrive upon and making me design spaces which creates experience to the users and learn more about architecture.
Pakistan was also influence by this growing movement of modern architecture. After 65 years of independence Pakistan is still grappling with the nature and its existence as secular or religious and therefore its identity. Kamil Khan Mumtaz was one of the most influent figure in architectural education and disclosure in Pakistan after its creation in 1947.he tried to create both pragmatic and philosophical aspects of architecture. He trained in modern movement at Architectural Association (AA), London. His search was more to explorer the appropriate architectural idioms for Pakistan.
This incident motivated me to opt for civil engineering and ensure safety by more detailed approaches to design and analysis of structures. But in order to do so ,I require a more specialized education in structural engineering. I believe that a graduate course in structural engineering from university would is a stepping stone towards my goal. Being the son of a civil contractor who is running a construction company for past 17 years, the exposure to civil engineering was available to me from my childhood. I used to visit projects and witnessed machines, tools and Tall Structures and it fascinated me to choose this career.
Architects gained a new perspective , experience and a new social life. In response to the demands of the machine age, Le Corbusier developed a new theory to refine and simplify design, without ornamentation . He wanted to invent a new artistic expression, just like all movement at that time. His planning and designing was influenced by machines and technology. Thus, he defined the house as “Machine for Living” .
