For me, architecture is not just about drawing things or designing something visually pleasant. Personally i believe that Architect has a strong role in building the future generation through designing built environment. Every spaces, every lines, and every curves that we think is necessary to develop the culture of future society.
I love to think about human behaviour when i work. For me, a good architecture should provide human with a good space related with their activities. I do not prefer aestethics as top priority. When my friend was exploring their design with shape exploration, i prefer to do my own research about human activities on related architecture object. Sometimes, when my friend was almost finished her project, i still have not finished my research yet. I cannot do instant working, i need time to think and make a good concept.
By that perspective, i try to do the best on my college work to achieve my own idealism of architecture. I try to convince my teachers about my ideas, and i think very hard on every project so i can develop my mindset better. Sometimes it ended very well, but there was also so many mistakes. I am glad that my friends supported my ideas, and my teacher also support my proposed solution. I admit that i still had so much to learn. But i am sure that i will get better and better as the time goes.
Throughout the years, there was so many question in my mind. How can i measure my design skills, if my works were just fictional and will never be done at the real word? How does it really feel to face real architecture problem? It cannot be answered. I realized, that the only way to understand more about architecture is to practice it on real problem and real architecture experience.
I have seen Mr. Realrich twice when i participated at seminar and open talk at Surabaya and Semarang. He talked about 99 percent project, and he shared his perspective about structure exploration. Not only that, he also shared about his favorite project, and i found that he shared common interest with me. He talked about Casa Mila made by Antonio Gaudi and Lawangsewu at Semarang. There, i am simply amazed by his point of view and his experience as an architect.
Now, i have to fulfill my Kerja Praktek at college. I believe that by learning at RAW Architecture, i can fulfill my curiousity as a student. I hope that i can improve my designing skills here, such as problem solving, making good concepts, exploring structure, and co-operating with teammates. I am ready to dedicate myself here, and i am ready to put my maximum effort to do the best.
So, here i am.
I really hope that soon i can hear a good news from your company. Thank you.
