Reflecting on my Journey so Far

Time really does fly! Just a few months ago, I was finding out what classes I would be taking during this semester and now here I am with the semester ending. The time has gone quickly considering how many changes and experiences have taken place within that period. This was an intense semester filled with assignments, tests, and revisions. On reflection, these moments made me grow as a person as I faced several challenges head-on throughout the semester.

The journey from inception to success is a lengthy process filled with highs and lows. It will take some time to figure out what works best for me in terms of writing technique, content strategy, design concepts, research methods, etc., Through this blog, I express my opinions on new designs and offer insights into understanding the fundamentals of architecture.

I have realized that blogging is not just about perfection; it is also about learning how to accept imperfections, failures, and challenges while continuing to create content as an architect. From detailing specific features in a particular architectural style to discussing building materials, I hope that this blog can provide readers with valuable information. With each post, I am getting the hang of architectural blogging more and more!

Writing blogs can be hard, particularly when it comes to keeping up with tight deadlines. As life gets busier and the demands on our time pile up, it can seem impossible to stay ahead, let alone keep up with timelines for our blogs. The key is to stay organized and plan to ensure that you can tackle blogging deadlines effectively. In this blog, I’ll be discussing how best to approach my blog deadlines for the upcoming semester.
Urban design goes beyond allocating spaces and beyond providing an aesthetic definition of urban areas. To create liveable cities, the urban designer needs to consider the needs of different groups of people, such as citizens, workers, visitors, etc. This is where having a comprehensive approach to urban planning comes in handy.

In my quest for a unified approach to urban design, I stumbled upon five distinguished modules: Sustainability, Mobility, Inclusivity, Interconnectivity, and Livability. These modules provided me with new insights into city-making that I was previously unaware of and helped me craft better designs that meet the ever-changing needs of our cities’ inhabitants.

In the module Principles and Practice of Urban design, the professors highlighted various topics that are relevant to Urban design and planning. By citing examples, they help us understand the process of designing a city in practice, rather than just as an academic exercise. From these examples, we can also gain insights that can be applied to other areas beyond urban design. Through this process, we become equipped with knowledge and skills that enable us as individuals to question existing assumptions and think critically about the world around us. We as Urban designers need to be more sensitive towards the inhabitant’s necessities and design with critical thinking
