Looking for a new job is stressful regardless of where you are in your career. Job hunting never really gets easier and, for architects, this is compounded by the fact that we need so much more than simply just a resume (i.e. portfolios and work samples). So why would we make this task harder than it really needs to be? If you take a few things into… Continue

“The man of learning… can fearlessly look down upon the troublesome accidents of fortune. But he who thinks himself entrenched in defense not of learning but of luck, moves one slippery path, struggling though life unsteadily and insecurely.” by: Marcus Vitruvius

There are tasks that you cannot avoid doing in practice that will cause you to hate your job. And then there are tasks that you can pleasantly avoid in order to make your life a lot easier. One of these tasks that you should try to avoid at all costs is 3D rendering.
It sounds like blasphemy really. Most people these days will graduate from their university with a greater knowledge of 3D modeling software than… Continue

I have recently had the pleasure to study Oppenheim for a Uni project and have become a huge fan of his designs.
In particular, the breath taking Marina and beach tower. This building is a perfect tribute to dubi's excentricity.
His excitement over forms and details is nothing short of inspiring. Architects who are not afraid to push boundries and constraints are the… Continue

I feel really concerned about the current scenario wherein terms like overseas architects seem threatening rather than welcoming....
There has been a trend of students going to countries like US and UK to study their Masters degree in Architecture and then landing up with no jobs, current news being that Home office in the UK have raised the bar of salary for overseas architect to £75k to further their work visas!!!!!!!!
This is clearly like making a statement that overseas talent is to… Continue

Having been fortunate enough to travel across the world to study architecture, there is one typology that repeatedly attracts my interest. I call it the architecture of “who cares?” It’s not a terribly sophisticated term, but I hope my point is well taken. It describes the project that doesn’t demand media attention, doesn’t attract activist protestors and doesn’t have tons of money thrown… Continue

In the pantheon of classic modern buildings, Utzon's creation has the status of myth. The myth states that the unknown Utzon, then in his 30s, submitted rough sketches - back-of-the-envelope stuff - to the competition judges, that he ignored most of the rules, that his design was only selected after being plucked at the last moment from the reject pile by one of the judges,… Continue

Modern design, including modern architecture, is experiencing a dramatic surge in popularity. More and more of our clients are coming in and asking for modern designs without knowing what it means to have a residence in the "modern" style.
