Hi everyone, I am Berke from Istanbul. This is my first ever competition. So far I am a one-man team, maybe in the following days some of my friends will be joining me. I study architecture and I am currently struggling with my studies. I was always interested in architecture, urban planning, landscaping and other areas of design, like 3D modeling, sculpting, character design, level design and so on, yet I am doubtful about my place in this industry which ,in my opinion, revolves too much around profit and schedules instead of passion and “architecture”. That’s why, when I saw this competition, I wanted to challenge myself and to see where my passion of architecture leads me. It’s gonna be an interesting experience. 🙂
We completely understand your situation, and would like to share a thought that might help you view your architecture studies with more optimism.
Because architects have been around for centuries, like doctors, it is often thought that if you study architecture you can only work as an architect, the same way if you study medicine you can only be a doctor. However, we believe that is not true at all. Studying architecture opens so many doors that are not necessarily the traditional “architecture studio” work. We’ve seen architect become great project managers, web designers, video game designers, launch and manage plenty of ONGs that focus on social issues, and much more.
We encourage you to look at your architecture studies as a path with multiple branches. Keep an open mind and you’ll find your purpose soon enough, and when you do you’ll surely find your architecture studies very handy 😉
