hi there! I am busy with my fourth year in design and loving it more by every second i practise it. Do you like problem-solving? Cause that's what its all about, to make your building work, and if your good to make it amazing is the essense of progressive architectural design. Off course all along whilst cracking your brain your creativity should be fueling the development process. having innovative ideas that inspire your thoughts helps you pull through the more tedious bathroom layouts!
I think thats the great thing about general architecture that it is the mixture between the rational and the romantic, the creative and the lateral, etc. There's the scientific objectives, weighed against the emotive, abstract ones.
so if you can find this interesting enough, join cause it will most probably change your life, yes you'll have less time to hang out atthe beach, but you'll soon find that there are much better things in life than those which the media can explain!
