As an architecture student, I’ve been more and more developing a “love-hate” kind of relationship with architecture; sometimes I could get so devastated by architecture that I’d feel like I just want to throw it away to a cliff, but then I’d want to rush down to the bottom to catch it again. The more I dive into the architecture world the more I learn that architecture is far more comprehensive and quiet everything can actually relate to architecture. This actually gives me pressure, as an architecture student, I then have many expectations for myself to be able to not just swallow but also digest this comprehensiveness of architecture as much as I can.
Learning in ITS certainly teaches me lots of things regarding this architecture world and it eventually leads me to this normally-and-commonly-asked-to-self question; “What is it that I can participate and contribute?” Up until now, to be completely honest, my answer to that question is still in a blur. I honestly still haven’t fully understood about the world of architecture in the life after graduate and I really need an experience that can help me to have a bit more illustration.
Having references from my seniors, I’m really interested in this Summer Architecture Workshop program provided by RAW. I think this program teaches a lot to the undergraduates to be more experienced and prepared for the architectural working world ahead. I’m really looking forward to learn more about what is there to learn in architecture and especially the knowledge that I don’t get from my formal study in university.
As an intern or participant in this program, I hope to absorb as many architecture knowledge as I can to expand and enrich my knowledge and ability so that I can optimally contribute to my surroundings, and with a start, I hope to fulfill the expectations from RAW with having me as an intern. After this program I’d expect myself to no longer have blurry visions about my goal in this architecture world, and who knew I might just turn my love-hate kind of relationship into a maybe love-love kind of relationship with architecture.
