Architecture personal statementWatch
I'will like to introduce myself. My name is Stephen from Italy but I was born in Ghana in 1997. At the age of 6, and my creative skills started when I was in Ghana secondary school, there was when I noticed myself that I was very talented at designing.
At the age of 15, I continue my secondary school in "Tintoretto" - Istituto Comprensivo di Grantorto in Italy. These two and a half year in secondary school, I was challenging my creative techniques in modelling and sculpture in art lessons, but drawing and modelling was the lesson I enjoyed the most.
When I was nearly to finished my secondary school to then proceed to college. One of my art teachers gave me the advice to choose a course which can help me develop my skills in design this was because he notices that I was good at Art. So I chose to study as a graphic design in college because with this course I thought It will develop my creative skills in Indesign, Photoshop, Illustration and many design software.
So I studied for 3 years in college then when I finished the course I entered in the UK with dad to then progress on with my studies. So I chose to study as 3D design transport and architecture in Coventry city college. This course was very excited because my ambition was to progress to university and study a degree course as Architecture.
I studied for 1 year in college this was because I wanted to learn a bit about the culture of the UK and how their do things. I was amazed at UK buildings on how they continue to develop their builds. I was having a project in college base on an outdoor balcony which the aim of the project was to develop skills and understand the design process and apply it to a production of an architectural model. In this project, I was also informed to research a balcony with a community art displayed.
So on this project, I end up getting well on it. because it was base on something that I really love to do in my career, which was architecture. This is because architecture is able to unleash their creativity that was why I love to pursue an architecture study. Even having the skills of graphic design combined with architecture will help me create a better environment for the society.
My passion for architecture has forced me to explore many places with modern buildings in Birmingham, learning about people and their environments. I then visited the cube building in Birmingham which was designed by Ken Shuttleworth. I really like the shape and the idea behind the building it inspired me a lot.
