I’m a Frustrated Architect

I always wanted to be an architect. Architecture was the first thing that came to my mind when I first applied for University. “There is no money in Architecture” was the common reaction I get when I consulted my family and friends during those times.

If I were not an IT professional now, I would most certainly have been an architect. This also explains my love for Engineering Drawing when I was in University. My sister’s an architect. I also have at least one cousin who’s an architect.

It’s in the blood.

Thank Google for SketchUp, I can still live this dream… at least during my free time.

Here’s something I’ve worked on today – a typical one-bedroom apartment in Tokyo. Maybe I can get real-estate companies to pay me to make these models and prove my friends wrong.

  2. Google is definitely helping us live our dreams!Sometimes, I also have problems passing those turing tests from Blogger. Makes me doubt if I’m a real human. Hehe.
