It is undeniable that architects are the ones who shape this world in which we live; epitomizing Winston Churchill's quote -"we shape our buildings, thereafter they shape us". With this letter, I hereby wish to state my interest and appreciation for the opportunity to apply for the challenging yet interesting Master degree program in Architecture at the Dessau International Architecture Graduate School – DIA. / My application for the challenging yet interesting Master degree in Architecture at the Dessau International Architecture Graduate School – DIA stems from the internationalist perspective and desire to study at one of the best universities in Germany. Today I perceive that life for me has been a process of conscious evolution. As I embark
Architecture is a combination of myriad fields like history, art, technology, humanity (psychology), environment, cultural and traditional knowledge systems. I am more fascinated by the process of creating something real from its abstract form. Designing and constructing a physical structure is not just science but an art. This contrast in the subject which allows one to engage both creatively and scientifically has been the reason that has led me to channel my proclivity for it, which eventually led me to choosing architecture as a career path. During the five years I spent studying architecture, I developed a keen interest in urbanism.
It combines design with mathematics, all of which interest me. At first, I could not decide between architecture and engineering, but during the summer between my junior and senior year of high school I did a week-long job shadow at an architecture firm which helped me make my decision. My experience at Straughn Trout Architects in Lakeland influenced my choice tremendously. I witnessed the everyday lives of architects and
As a mechanical engineer, I have dreamed of delving into architecture for many years. When I was a teenager, I applied two years in a row to my dream architecture school in China. Due to various circumstances, I was not able to attend. Instead, I ended up in the engineering school at one of China’s best universities, which unfortunately does not have a school of architecture. Back then, architecture was so irresistible but also inaccessible to me.
My next future goal would be get a starting job to be able to support my future family. With the internship that I would get at Purdue NorthWest, they would be able to help my find I job that I would like to do. This job would be able to help me get money so that I can start a family. My final future goal would be to go back to college to get my Masters Degree in engineering. As technology advances into the future, I would need to go back to college to update myself with the new technology.
Building the World the Arhitect Way Architects are the designers of buildings and other various structures. It is mandatory for architects to have a college degree; it is also vital that a person with this profession is creative and has the ability to draw well. Traveling to different places is one of the benefits of a career in architecture. Some architects do not care about their pay; they often focus on being creative, imaginative, and their drawing skills. Architects are expected to have impressive math, communication, and negotiating skills.
The architecture plan focuses on the electrical and plumbing requirements, lightening plan for each room, exterior design elements, and the interior architecture, trim, millwork and ceiling finishes. Interior design in contrast focuses on selecting interior materials, finishes, hardware, furnishings, textiles, drapery/window treatments, paint color, wallpaper and accents. This is why architects tend to view interior designers as people who come in after the “real” work is done, after the building has been established and everything is put into place, and simply embellish the space they had just created with carpet, tile and paint. But that is of course belittling the interior designer’s work. Architects work with the main structure of a building, they are authorized to make changes to it.
It will be the foundation of every student who are going to track an architectural course. A student should be able to express ideas through drawing but he/she should not force and rush to be good at it immediately because it will further developed in the process of education and through practice. RECOMMENDATIONS The focus of the study is the views of architecture students towards the significance of drawing skills, in which recommendations were espoused from the summary and the results of the
I feel that graduate study is essential to give me the preparation necessary for a planned career in my chosen field. I found that I was more interested in applying my knowledge practically and wanted to choose a field, which gave me this privilege. To satiate my curiosity and to fulfill my ambitions, I have decided to pursue a master's program in Production Systems Engineering. The need for exposure to a wider environment has prompted me to seek an opportunity to study in the RWTH Aachen University. A degree from a University like RWTH Aachen university would serve as a solid base for a successful career in engineering.
Design engineering, is the application of engineering principles and technology to building design and construction. In this issue of AD magazine: The New Structuralism the guest editors (Rivka Oxman and Robert Oxman) call for a new model of architectural production in which architects and engineers work together in a higher level of cooperation. Design no longer needs to be controlled by form with structure following behind; structure becomes fundamental to form- finding. This issue calls for engineers to be part of the design conceptual stage and no longer only a fixer used in the last stage of the design process. The Oxman’s publication is an investigation into the current state of relationship between architecture and engineering.
