Architecture has always fascinated me. The desire in exploring how science and technology can be used to improve the performance of both building and the environment, architecture has brought out the dichotomy of my personality, allowing me to engage both creatively and scientifically with the aesthetic and functional aspects of design. be of the opinion that person who is even in the slightest touch with architecture knows that this profession’s field is incredibly broad. And when something is that complex, it must be important. The complexity of the profession anticipates the scholar to understand the all aspects of the discipline from the foundation. Being highly thoughtful of environment my intention is to escort designs that supports the mother nature.
