My name is Laudza Az Zahra, I’m currently a 5th semester student who’s very passionate on architecture, especially enjoys visualizing such as urban sketching, 3d rendering, digital design, and photography.
I always see myself as a curious and determined person who’s love to seek new knowledge and experience. Anywhere and at any given time, I will open to new challenge, take every opportunity to improve both my knowledge and experience. For me, these two are some of the most valuable things that I could have in my life and I’m willingly share to others.
Back then, I never imagined myself pursuing a degree in architecture. But, after two years of learning process in my university, I’m amazed on how architecture makes me learn lots of new things, makes me discover lots of aesthetically pleasing places, makes me meet with lots of wonderful person, and more importantly become more affectionate to my surroundings environments. Little did I know, architecture has changed me ever since.
I really like attending any form architectural event, be it sharing session, workshop, or exhibition. I believe that as a semi-design student, we mostly learn by using our visual sensing. By attending those event, I can see lots of new things that enrich my visual vocabulary and broaden my mind as a college student. Therefore, I often attend Omah Library’s event. They held lots of interesting architectural event and sharing session, and I’d like to be the part of it someday. Eventually, I volunteered in Titik Awal Exhibition 2018. I’ve been volunteering for one month, and I can say that the working environment here is really great and very welcoming. Everyone is so hard-working yet friendly and fun to work with, and very open to share their knowledge. I learn how to work in team, how to manage things in unexpected situation, how to communicate and build connection with people from different background, and many more.
I personally think the true process of learning is when you experienced things directly. Learning is the single best investment of our time that we can make. Or as Benjamin Franklin said, “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest.”
‘What’s the meaning of studying architecture, when you’re not actually getting involved in the process of architecture making?’ I thought.
