Sample Architecture Personal Statement

Ambitious, meticulous, creative and passion for design are qualities which I believe will make me successful in achieving excellent academic and industry results in architecture, interior and spatial Design. Having a deep understanding of physics, excellent ability to project manage and profound creativity, I believe I can contribute to the academic environment your university provides.

My strengths lie in my capacity to understand, calculate and design precise concepts, with innovative creativity within cross-functional project teams. Working in harmony with my engineering degree, this reaffirms my propensity for accuracy, function and endurance in structural design and aesthetics.

Demonstrating my ability and commitment to pursuing a career in this field, I have undertaken important and relevant courses to further develop my skills and build my portfolio. This includes a professional course, gaining a firm grounding in the design process, interior elements and drawing techniques. I have also developed my visual vocabulary required to present work to clients. I have cultivated my skills in residential and commercial design through various innovative projects. Additionally, I have complete an architectural sketching course.

Completing the 3DS Max, AutoCAD and Vray Advanced Course has given me the powerful, industry standard tools needed to create and manipulate architectural and interior visualisations. Using these professional programs I am able to create high quality visuals for practical applications. I have learnt how to work in a production environment, proficiently utilise a variety of techniques and materials to texture models, produce realistic light sources, render scenes, use Photoshop, post-processing and perceive compositional techniques.

These comprehensive courses reflect my drive and ambition to succeed in this dynamic world of design. I am confident to take a brief, analyse the requirements, provide a visual interpretation, present the final project and evaluate the process and outcomes. The ability to use industry standard programs proficiently gives me a solid competitive advantage in today’s complex marketplace.

Assigned to a 3 month work placement as project advisor for office design, I utilised my technical skills, intrinsic aptitude for design and creativity. I was responsible for the refurbishment and decoration of the offices. Designing my own house highlighted my ability and talent for professional interior design.

I have an innate fascination and interest in interior decor; how different colours, textures, objects and lighting have an emotional impact on the inhabitants. In my own time I enjoy sketching, photography, evaluating historical and contemporary space and editing personal projects. Connecting space, design and architectural structure with the psychology and culture of humans is something I find I do every day. I take inspiration from journals such as John Wardle Architects and trade magazines such as Detail, FX and Idfx.

A combination of precise engineering and technical design skills, passion for imaginative design and motivation, I choose to succeed in this demanding and dynamic field of design. My creativity and natural curiosity push boundaries reflecting my innovative style to produce substantial, effective and striking designs while considering the physical environment and social sensitivity in contemporary society. I believe these qualities and skills make me a competent candidate, motivated to succeed on this course and in future endeavours.
